 APA Report

 
 Assembly Executive Committee (AEC) overwhelmingly passed the following motion about a week ago.  The motion was made by the Speaker of the Assembly and seconded by me.  The Speaker’s motion stated:
 
“I move that the APA Board of Trustees recommend to the ABPN that Part IV of the MOC be eliminated.  I further move that the APA reaffirm its commitment to lifelong learning and quality improvement and support for the highest scientific and ethical standards of medical practice.”
 
Recently, the American Academy of Neurology wrote to the ABPN asking them to eliminate Part IV of MOC. 
 
Part IV is the Performance In Practice (PIP) requirements that include the clinical and patient/peer feedback modules.
 
During a conference call of the AEC last Tuesday, there was a strong support to have the Speaker make the above motion at the Board of Trustees Meeting on March 14.
 
The Newsweek article referenced below is worth reading.
