ACNS is committed to providing continuing medical education to its members and others interested in clinical neurophysiology.
Online learning activities have been developed around new and rapidly-evolving areas of clinical neurophysiology and have been designed to cover both basic methodologies and innovative techniques. Educational activities seek to address the following professional practice gaps, as identified by the ACNS Program, Course, Webinar and CME Committees:
Gap 1. Emerging Areas of Practice
Neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring (NIOM) and intensive care unit EEG monitoring (ICU EEG) are new and rapidly evolving areas of clinical neurophysiology. Few practicing neurologists have adequate training in these techniques, and physicians with competence in these areas are in great demand. Educational activities should cover both basic methodologies for those practitioners new to ICU EEG and NIOM, and innovative techniques.
Gap 2. General Practice of Clinical Neurophysiology
Clinical neurophysiology procedures are performed by a large proportion of practicing US neurologists, many of whom have little or no formal training in clinical neurophysiology. Many clinical neurophysiology procedures (e.g. evoked potentials, invasive EEG) are performed at low volume at most centers, and a forum for review and hands-on interpretation are essential to maintain competence in these areas.
ACNS’s educational activities are directed to clinical neurophysiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, physiatrists, neurosurgeons, trainees in these disciplines and other physicians and researchers who utilize clinical neurophysiological techniques and knowledge in the diagnosis and management of patients with disorders of the nervous system.
Each online learning activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Educations (ACCME) through the sponsorship of ACNS. ACNS is accredited by ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
ACNS designates each online learning activity for a maximum .5 - 1 AMA PRA Category I Credit(s)TM, as indicated on the opening pages of the specific activity. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Instructions for CME Credit
CME certificates will be available upon completion of the educational activity, with a passing score of 75% or higher; and a brief . Participants are required to complete session evaluations to obtain a CME
Certificates will appear in PDF format, which the participant my print or save to his/her computer. Please note that certificates will not be mailed or emailed after the activity.
