Each edition has four articles available for review. Other clinicians for whom CME is acceptable in meeting educational requirements may report up to four hours of participation.


To earn CME for reading each article designated for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit, you must:

  1. Score at least 50% in the posttest
  2. Complete the evaluation in Section B and provide your contact information 



The Kaiser Permanente National CME Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.


The Kaiser Permanente National CME Program designates this journal-based CME activity for 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. 

Objectives of Continuing Medical Education


  1. Integrate learned knowledge and increase competence/confidence to support improvement and change in specific practices, behaviors, and performance.
  2. Lead in further developing “Patient-Centered Care” activities by acquiring new skills and methods to overcome barriers, improve physician/patient relationships, better identify diagnosis and treatment of clinical conditions, as well as, efficiently stratify health needs of varying patient populations.
  3. Implement changes and apply updates in services and practice/policy guidelines, incorporate systems and quality improvements, and effectively utilize evidence-based medicine to produce better patient outcomes.
