The American Board of Anesthesiology’s (ABA’s) Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology Program (MOCA®) Part 4 is titled Practice Performance Assessment and Improvement (PPAI).
One PPAI activity is a Case Evaluation–based performance improvement activity.
A case evaluation requires the collection of data from clinical outcomes or patient feedback, comparison to evidence-based practice guidelines, an educational activity, the design and implementation of a plan to improve outcomes, and assessment of the success of the interventions. All of these steps are facilitated by the electronic format of this ASA PPAI program.
NOTE: Care should be taken in selecting the appropriate PPAI topic. You will be required to provide actual data from patients’ charts in a secure environment. Please be sure to select a topic that is relevant to your practice.
PPAI courses fulfill the Case Evaluation requirement of Part 4 of the Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology Program (MOCA®) of the American Board or Anesthesiology (ABA). Please consult the ABA website, www. theABA.org, for a list of all MOCA® requirements.
Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology Program® and MOCA® are registered certification marks of The American Board of Anesthesiology®.
