This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of ProCE, Inc., the National Association of Managed Care Physicians (NAMCP), and the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA). The NAMCP is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education (CME) to physicians. The NAMCP designates this enduring material for a maximum of 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This activity is a self-study program. Upon entering the activity, participants should read the text, examine any images and/or multimedia features, and review the content presented within all of the links provided. Once the course has been reviewed in its entirety, participants will be asked to complete a post-test and evaluation online. Participants must receive a test score of 100% in order to proceed to the course evaluation; the post-test can be repeated until all questions are answered correctly. All evaluation questions must be completed in order to receive a certificate of credit. If needed, participants may save their answers and complete the course at a later date. Saved courses can be found on the "My Activities" page, accessed via "My Account" at the top of the page.
