Physicians with current and valid licenses in the United States, Canada, or Mexico who read any 3 of the selected continuing medical education (CME) articles in this issue of Archives of Neurology, complete the CME Evaluation Form, and fax it to the number or mail it to the address at the bottom of the CME Evaluation Form are eligible for category 1 CME credit. There is no charge.
The American Medical Association (AMA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. The AMA designates this educational activity for up to 3 hours of category 1 CME credit per Archives of Neurology issue toward the AMA Physician's Recognition Award (PRA). Each physician should claim only those hours of credit that were actually spent in this educational activity.
Physicians with current and valid licenses in the United States, Mexico, or Canada are eligible for CME credit even if they live or practice in other countries. Physicians licensed in other countries are also welcome to participate in this CME activity. However, the PRA is only available to physicians licensed in the United States, Canada, or Mexico.
The Archives of Neurology provides new evidence for the practice of neurology, neurosurgery, and other specialties whose goal is to improve the neurological health of all people. Original contributions, neurological reviews, neurology and public health, and history of neurology are among the categories of articles published, but all contributions receive a sympathetic reading by the Chief Editor. The journal's editorial board sets the initial framework for the types of articles published, which is then modified by feedback from editors, external peer reviewers, authors, and readers. We are keen to receive submissions from practicing neurologists to provide new insight for colleagues.
We want our readers to assess each article critically; this CME activity is active, not passive. Does the article contribute in some way to the practice of neurology? How could you modify your practice style to incorporate what you have learned? How can you acquire more information, challenge the authors' conclusions, or verify what you have read? Which of the articles in each issue is least helpful in your quest for the best and most applicable evidence?
To earn 1 hour of category 1 CME credit, you should read any 3 of the CME articles listed below and complete the CME Evaluation Form. To earn 3 hours of credit, read all of the articles listed below and complete the CME Evaluation Form. The CME Evaluation Form must be submitted within 4 weeks of the issue date. A certificate awarding up to 3 hours of category 1 CME credit will be faxed or mailed to you; it is then your responsibility to maintain a record of credit received. Questions about CME credit processing should be directed to The Blackstone Group; tel: (312) 419-0400, ext 225; fax: (312) 269-1636.
One of our goals is to assess continually the needs of our readers so we may enhance the educational effectiveness of the Archives of Neurology. To achieve this goal, we need your help. You must complete the CME Evaluation Form to receive credit.
