Also known as a practice improvement project or quality improvement project. A four-step process where diplomates assess their practice and implement changes that improve patient outcomes.
A project may be completed in anesthesiology or an anesthesiology subspecialty, and may be completed by an individual, practice group or hospital. If completed by a group, each diplomate must submit his/her own documentation.
In lieu of a self-directed Case Evaluation diplomates may complete one of the following:
- Reciprocity with other ABMS Boards: One Part 4 activity through any other ABMS Board as long as the date completed falls within the required timeframe as the Case Evaluation. Documentation of completion of the activity must be submitted with diplomates' requests for Part 4 credit. All diplomates enrolled in MOCA must complete a Simulation Education Course and an Attestation as defined by their specific program requirements.
- Quality Improvement Project through the Multi-Specialty Portfolio Program: This requires your healthcare organization to apply and gain approval for group quality improvement activities. For more information click here.
