Approximately 1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes but only 10% are aware of their condition. Prediabetes is characterized by elevated blood glucose levels not yet in the type 2 diabetes range and associated with increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown a gap in screening knowledge with an estimated 6% of providers correctly identifying all 11 of the risk factors for prediabetes screening and only 17% able to identify the laboratory values for prediabetes (FPG, A1C). This activity measures performance for identifying eligible patients for prediabetes screening.

In support of physicians' board certification, this Performance Improvement - Continuing Medical Education (PI-CME) activity is designed to support medical practices' quality improvement (QI) initiatives for the purpose of earning CME credits and MOC Part IV points. During this activity, the learner will actively work towards improving their practice by assessing their current practice, learning best practices and guidelines relevant to the content, implementing changes to their practice, and evaluating and reflecting on the changes they made to their practice.

This activity has been approved for MOC Part IV points by the following specialty boards:

  • American Board of Family Medicine

  • American Board of Internal Medicine

  • American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology

  • American Board of Pediatrics

  • American Board of Preventive Medicine

Each activity is divided into separate assessment stages:

  1. Baseline measurement and intervention planning stage - 5 AMA PRA Category I Credits™ awarded upon completion.

  2. Interventions implementation stage. At least 7 days of intervention implementation is required - 5 AMA PRA Category I Credits™ awarded upon completion.

  3. Evaluation measurement and reflections - 5 AMA PRA Category I Credits™ awarded upon completion.

  4. Completion and submission of final quiz - 5 AMA PRA Category I Credits™ awarded upon completion.

Learners will earn a separate CME certificate for each stage completed.
