Comprehensive Migraine Education Program (CMEP) Self-Assessment and Performance in Practice Modules

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Self-Assessment and Performance in Practice (PIP) activities are required for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) Maintenance of Certification. Self-Assessment activities cover knowledge and/or “best-practices” in one or more competency areas and provide feedback that can be used as the basis for focused Continuing Medical Education (CME), lifelong learning, and/or career development. PIP is a quality improvement activity for “clinically-active” physicians to assess their current practice patterns, compare those practice patterns to a set of “best-practices”, participate in educational activities to improve one’s practice, and then re-evaluate one’s practice following the educational interventions.

These PIP and Self-Assessment modules focus on migraine, with a special focus on chronic migraine. Migraine is a common neurologic disorder affecting 18% of women and 6% of men in the United States. Long considered a chronic disorder with a stable course, recent research demonstrates that in a subgroup, migraine progresses from a pattern of less frequent headaches (termed ‘episodic migraine’) to very frequent headaches (termed ‘chronic migraine’); a condition with a population prevalence of about 2%. These Self-Assessment and PIP modules aim to assess your knowledge and clinical performance regarding the diagnosis and treatment of migraine patients, and then provide educational activities aimed at enhancing your knowledge-base and clinical skills.
