  5. 5. Maintenance of CertificationThrough its responsibility to provide quality CME to its membership, the ACAAI continues its support of the ABAI, which credentialsand evaluates allergy and immunology specialists. Since 1977, ABAI has offered its Diplomates a recertification process to demonstrate theirefforts in continuing education. In 2009, ABAI transitioned to the more comprehensive Maintenance of Certification(ABMS MOC) program.Linking the education content of the ACAAI Annual Scientific Meetings to the MOC program is one way ACAAI helps its members provideABAI with evidence of their commitment to lifelong learning. Ultimately, CME activities for which MOC credit is awarded may be cross-referenced to the ABAI examination content outline, available on the ABAI website www.abai.org. Members are encouraged to select areasof interest from the program, which will enhance their knowledge of state-of-the-art allergy/immunology and improve the quality ofpatient care.ACAAI will assist Allergy/Immunology Training Programs with additional curricular resources and assessment measures that may beused to help meet their requirements for assessing competency in the six core areas as designed by the ACGME. The six corecompetencies include:1 Patient Care — the ability to provide patient care that is 4 Interpersonal and Communication Skills — the ability to compassionate, appropriate, and effective for the treatment of demonstrate interpersonal and communication skills that result health problems and the promotion of health: in effective information exchange and collaboration with • data gathering patients, their families, and other health professionals: • history taking • teaming and team leadership skills (interprofessional, • patient examination multidisciplinary) • diagnosis • effective communicator and listener • interpretation/decision-making/assessment • caring, respectful behavior • management/treatment plans • written and verbal communication skills • preventive care • educating/counseling patients and family members • procedures • teaching skills2 Medical Knowledge — the knowledge about established and 5 Professionalism — reflects a commitment to carrying out evolving biomedical, clinical, and cognate sciences and the professional responsibilities, adherence to ethical principles, application of this knowledge to patient care: and sensitivity to a diverse patient population: • general principles/concepts/theories • physician accountability • applied basic sciences • humanistic qualities (respect, compassion, integrity) • applied biomedical sciences • professional ethics • applied clinical knowledge • socio-cultural factors (sensitivity to culture, diversity, gender, • epidemiology and psychosocial behavioral sciences age, disabilities) • population-based medicine • advocacy for and responsive to patient needs • commitment to excellence and quality care3 Practice-based Learning and Improvement — the ability • mentorship and role-modeling to investigate and evaluate patient care practices, appraise and assimilate scientific evidence, and improve their patient 6 System-based Practice — an awareness of and responsiveness care practices: to the larger context and system of healthcare, and the ability to • benchmarks/best practices call effectively on other resources in the system to provide • practice related quality improvement optimal health care: • evidence-based practice/medicine • patient safety • continuing professional development/continuing • cost-effective care medical education • management of resources • practice self-assessment • medical errors • information technology/medical informatics • continuity of care • teaching and learning and lifelong learning • healthcare delivery and systems of care models • utilization issues • risk management • electronic record keeping • management and leadership skills 5

The American College ofAllergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) toprovide continuing medical education for physicians.American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) designates this live activity for a maximum of 2.0 AMA PRA Category1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.11:30 am – 1:30 pm With recent estimates suggesting that there has been a rise in allergic reactions, it has become critically important that healthcare providers are armed with the most up-to-date information on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of anaphylaxis. With 3 sets of clinical guidelines having been released between 2010 and 2011, the ideal source of information on anaphylaxis management remains elusive. In an educational setting, experts can better provide what must be known (diagnostic criteria, trigger avoidance, treatment strategies, emergency action plans, etc.) to ensure that optimal care is given to patients who are at risk for anaphylaxis, regardless of a patient’s past history or sensitivities to a given allergic trigger.
