PS-LLSA Requirement Ending
ABEM is committed to improving the value and relevance of the ABEM MOC Program. In response to your feedback, ABEM will no longer require that ABEM-certified physicians complete the Patient Safety LLSA (PS-LLSA). Patient safety–related topics will be included in EM and subspecialty LLSAs.
If you have registered for but not completed the PS-LLSA activity, or if you have not registered for it but are interested in participating in the activity, you will have until March 1, 2018 to complete the PS-LLSA.
If you have registered for the PS-LLSA and not started the activity, you have the option of requesting that your test fee to be applied to another ABEM LLSA. For those who signed up for the associated CME activity, the CME fee can also be transferred. This is a one-time exception to the ABEM Policy on Fees. All requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, and must be received by June 30, 2018. Please include your name and let us know the LLSA you would like to take instead of the PS-LLSA.
Even though the PS-LLSA requirement is ending, completion of the PS-LLSA will continue to count toward the four LLSAs needed every five years to meet the LLSA requirement. ABEM is grateful for your feedback and the opportunity to improve your continuing certification.
