This HFSA Board Review Certification Course has been designed based on the competencies identified with practice in the area of Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology.
These competencies include epidemiology, causes and management of patients with HF, management of hospitalized patients, management of comorbidities, cardiac surgery in HF, medical management of the heart transplant patient and patients with mechanical circulatory support, and evaluation and management of patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension.
The Heart Failure Society of America is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Heart Failure Society of America designates this live activity for a maximum of 19 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.™ Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the post course evaluation with a passing score of 80% on the posttests, enables the participant to earn up to 19 MOC points in the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program.
Participants of the live virtual activity wishing to claim MOC must complete requirements no later than Monday, November 23, 2020. This will allow time for the HFSA, the CME provider, to submit the participant’s completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
Receiving Continuing Education Credit
In order to receive a credit certificate, ALL session post-tests, session evaluations, and the HFSA Virtual Board Certification Review 2020 course evaluation must be completed. The posts-tests and evaluations will be available in the HFSA Learning Center.
Session post-tests and session evaluations will be available after the conclusion of each session. The course evaluations can be accessed once every session post-test and session evaluation is completed. The Post-tests and Evaluation link will be available on the “Continuing Education Credits” tab on the event page following Day 1 of the course.
Physicians claiming MOC credit must take the evaluation and post-test by November 30, 2020. Physicians will also be required to submit their unique six-digit ABIM ID number. If you do not know your ABIM ID, you can look it up on ABIM’s website.
