◦ Test Your Knowledge — Answer one of over 13,000+ questions from our library to test your knowledge. We’ll also let you know the course on which the question is based, so you can add it to your library and learn more on that topic.
◦ Credit Tracker — Easily identify and keep track of activities to complete your state CME requirements.
◦ After you log in, go to your Dashboard, and click on the Credit Tracker tab. Then click on the My Transcript button. Once you are on the transcript page, you will see a preview of the credits earned year-to-date. To view/print a certificate of this year-to-date transcript, click on the Download Transcript button.
◦ Alternatively, you can utilize the Select Specialty and Select Date Range filters to customize your transcript for just those courses and/or the date range that are most meaningful for you. Click on “Submit” to view the customized transcript on-screen. You can change your filter selections as many times as you’d like, and each transcript version can be viewed/printed as a separate certificate by clicking on the Download Transcript button.
◦ Click on the Download Transcript button to generate a PDF of your CME/CE certificate. Double-click on the PDF preview to view your certificate onscreen. From there, you may save the document to your computer or mobile device or print a paper copy.
◦ AudioDigest provides you with a Pre-test to gauge your baseline level of knowledge on the lecture material and a Post-test to gauge the level of knowledge gained from reviewing the lecture material.
◦ All tests utilize a multiple-choice format. Read each question carefully, and choose the correct response (multiple-choice, A through D). Once you have selected a response for each question, click on the Submit button at the bottom of the test page.
◦ About the Pre-test.
• Open the Pre-test tab (located in the display bar directly below the audio control bar) prior to listening to the lecture.
• The pretest may be taken only once, since it is meant to determine your “pre-knowledge” of course material. This test is recommended as a fundamental part of the learning process.
• After submitting your answers, you will see the following results: your score, which questions were answered correctly and which were not, and the percentage of other test-takers who answered each of the questions correctly.
◦ About the Post-test.
• Open the Post-test tab (located in display bar directly below the audio control bar) only after completing all components of the lecture-activity (including review of the written summary and suggested reading).
• The post-test is mandatory if you wish to earn CME/CE credit for the lecture-activity.
• A passing score of ≥80% is required, but you may retake the test as many times as necessary to earn a passing score (Note to CRNAs: The posttest may only be completed and submitted once due to the testing mechanism utilized by AudioDigest. See Accreditation section for more details).
• Select the Save button if you want to pause the test before submitting your answers. When all questions have been answered, select the Submit button. As in the Pretest, you will see your score, and which questions were answered correctly or incorrectly. Note: Tests for activities that are also designated for "Maintenance of Certification" may include additional feedback such as rationale statements and suggestions for further reading.
• When you pass a posttest, you will see your score as well as the number of credits you have earned. You will be directed to proceed to the Evaluation tab to complete the activity.
◦ CD subscribers can locate tests by clicking on CD Testing from your Dashboard. This will generate a listing of all available tests (based on the issue title and publication date), and their current status (eg, Not Started). Select the test that corresponds to the CD you just listened to, and follow the instructions listed, starting with your attestation that you have followed the steps required for accreditation.
See above for testing instructions.
On December 11, the ACCME issued final guidelines regarding the use of high-value incentives. These guidelines do not restrict the use of gift card rewards. Visit the ACCME website to read their guidelines.
(1) Review introductory course content, including Educational Objectives and Faculty/Planner Disclosures.
(2) Listen to the audio program and review accompanying learning materials.
(3) Complete posttest (only after completing Step 2) and earn a passing score of at least 80%. Taking the Pretest and completing the Evaluation Survey are strongly recommended (but not mandatory) components of completing an AudioDigest course.
AudioDigest scores your tests using both automated systems and manual entry. Your credits are then stored in our database for later cumulative certificate printing. AudioDigest maintains an individual’s credit records for at least 6 years.
AudioDigest sends certificates to the participant only. AudioDigest also provides direct reporting of MOC Self-Assessment credits to various specialty boards on behalf of diplomates who subscribe to this service. Additionally, AudioDigest provides direct reporting of credits to the AANA for CRNA subscribers and to the ACPE for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians (see General Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians accreditation section for specific details).
Unless stated otherwise, AudioDigest lecture-activities qualify for CME/CE credit for up to 35 months from the date of publication.*
*CRNAs should refer to the “Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs)” section of the general Accreditation section for details on Class A CE expiration dates for specific AudioDigest Anesthesiology activities.
The submission deadline is December 31st of the year in which you wish the credit recorded.
In adherence to ACCME Standards for Commercial Support, AudioDigest requires all faculty and members of the planning committee to disclose relevant financial relationships within the past 12 months that might create any personal conflicts of interest. Prior to publication, any identified conflicts must have been resolved to ensure that the educational activity promotes quality in health care and not a proprietary business or commercial interest. For each AudioDigest CME/CE lecture course, information regarding financial relationships for all members of the faculty and planning committee is disclosed to the learner prior to the start of the activity (including the statement, “nothing to disclose” when applicable).
◦ Board Review, Best Lectures, Topical Collections and Silver membership customers can access lectures after your subscription has expired up until each lecture expires for CME/CE credit.
