For physicians, there are new maintenance of certification (MOC) requirements. This self-assessment module helps you meet these new standards.
As part of recertification requirements, physicians must now participate in Maintenance of Certification Program (MOC) activities like this one to cultivate a focus on lifelong learning and competency throughout one’s profession. This module helps you hone in on clinical and practice management skills that are central to quality patient care and improved outcomes for patients with mood disorders.
The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) has reviewed the 2012 Mood Disorders II MOC Self-Assessment Module and has approved this program as part of a comprehensive self-assessment program, which is mandated by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) as a necessary component of maintenance of certification.
At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the presentation, diagnosis, comorbidity, neurobiology and current treatment options available for mood disorders.
The target audience for this module is psychiatrists.
