Prediabetes PI CME Stage A: Learning from current practice performance assessment
The ultimate goal of this program is to increase prediabetes screening and treatment of non-pregnant patients 18 years and older with no previous diagnosis of diabetes. This goal will be achieved through: (1) working with physicians to help identify potential gaps and barriers in knowledge, attitude, skills and/or performance regarding adults at risk for diabetes, (2) increasing physician knowledge and awareness regarding the health impact of prediabetes and (3) providing tools and other resources to physicians to assist with all of the above and to track changes that are made in practice.

Prediabetes PI CME Stage A: Learning from current practice performance assessment
Release Date:
 November 14, 2014
Expiration Date:
November 14, 2017

Approved for 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.  Physicians will be awarded 5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ upon successful completion of Stage A and 5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ upon successful completion of Stage B. An additional 10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ will be awarded for successful completion, in sequence, of Stages A-C of this activity.

Objectives
At the end of this activity, physicians should be able to: 
  1. Define medical condition of prediabetes and treatment options for prediabetes.
  2. Increase the percentage of non-pregnant patients 18 years and older without diabetes who are screened for prediabetes.
  3. Increase the percentage of adult patients with prediabetes who receive an intervention for prediabetes (referred for nutrition counseling, referred to lifestyle program [e.g. DPP] or given a prescription [e.g., metformin]) by the physician practice.

Receiving CME Credits
To claim credits for this activity, participants will be required to do the following for each stage:

Stage A: 
Retrospectively review 25-30 patient charts based on the measures provided.
Complete the data extraction worksheet.
Complete Stage A online evaluation. 

The Data Abstraction Worksheet and Performance Score Worksheet were updated as of March 2016. 

Stage B:
Create and implement a plan for prospectively improving measures and improving practice based on the results of the Stage A chart review, using the tools and resources provided.
Complete Stage B online evaluation and reflections on learning.

Stage C:
Review 25-30 patient charts based on the measures provided.
Reflect on the effectiveness of the PI process.
Complete Stage C online evaluation.

Chart reviews allow participants to clearly identify gaps in practice, then compare before and after results to see what, if any, improvements have occurred throughout the PI process. Evidence-based measures have been created so participants will know exactly what to look for and track as they work through the chart review process.

    Target Audience
    This PI CME is designed for primary care, family geriatric and/or internal medicine physicians who manage the care of patients age 18 years and older. The measures are also applicable to other related specialties such as cardiology and endocrinology.

    Statement of Need
    There is a need to provide education and interventions to help physicians and their team (1) identify patients 18 years and older with prediabetes, (2) calculate and submit a prediabetes screening rate at baseline, (3) to increase their rate of prediabetes screening and (4) calculate and submit a post-intervention prediabetes screening rate with the aim of meeting or exceeding their rate prior to the implementation of interventions.

    Statement of Competency
    This activity is designed to address the following ABMS/ACGME competencies: practice-based learning and improvement, systems-based practice and patient care.

    Accreditation Statement
    The American Medical Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education credit for physicians.

    Credit Designation Statement
    The American Medical Association designates this Performance Improvement CME activity for a maximum of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
