CME : 29
2014 OC: The Radiology M and M Meeting: Misinterpretations, Misses and Mimics - Online Presentations plus Book is organized by American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS).
Date of issuance: June 5, 2014
Date of expiration: June 4, 2020
The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The ARRS designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 29 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ and 29 American Board of Radiology©, MOC Part II, Self-Assessment CME (SA-CME.) Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The Radiology M and M Meeting: Misinterpretations, Misses, and Mimics—is designed to improve imaging interpretation skills, facilitate a reduction in missed diagnoses, improve correct diagnosis rates, and positively affect patient care. Needs sources include peer review data, previous attendee course evaluations, clinical practice guidelines, peer-reviewed literature, and expert-defined needs for performance improvement in image interpretation and communication. Increased exposure to and more solid knowledge of interpretation traps, faults in decision heuristics used by radiologists, and barriers and limitations surrounding radiologic imaging interpretation and communication of test results are critical to improving radiologic diagnostic performance. Enhancing physicians' abilities to assess and differentiate common misses, mimics, and miscues is necessary to reduce errors and help physicians develop practice-based strategies for reducing error. To successfully implement and improve upon existing peer review, radiologists need to understand communication issues and the systems barriers that impede accurate diagnosis and to develop strategies and tools for overcoming the impediments.
Goals and Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, participants will possess the knowledge and skills to:
• Distinguish critical knowledge, communications, and image interpretation skills gaps.
• Assess and distinguish common mimics and errors that occur when interpreting the spectrum of imaging studies and formulate plans to improve quality and enhance communication with peers.
• Describe the factors contributing to the occurrence of perceptual and interpretive errors.
• Describe systems barriers to improving diagnoses and increasing communication with peers.
• Apply practice-based strategies for mitigating the occurrence of errors.
• Analyze personal peer review data, define performance improvement strategies, and test those strategies in practice.
Note: In-Training Members will receive a discounted price of $375 after login.
The target audience for this activity is radiologists in any clinical practice (private and academic) and radiologists in-training. Radiologists enrolled in Maintenance of Certification will be especially interested in the content given the practice-based learning content, and the growing interest in peer review processes.
