Meeting-Based Practice Assessment Activities

2018 Quality Cancer Care Symposium: Eligible Abstract Presenters

Abstract presenters at the ASCO Quality of Care Symposium may now be eligible to receive Maintenance of Certification (MOC) practice assessment points from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). To be eligible, abstracts must be based on quality improvement (QI) activities that clearly follow the PDSA cycle, and include baseline and follow up data post intervention for a minimum of 25 patients. In addition, abstracts must also be accepted for oral or poster presentation. To apply for MOC points, first authors should indicate during the abstract submission process whether this abstract should be considered for the receipt of ABIM MOC points.  Those abstracts that are identified as having interest in receiving MOC points will be reviewed by Symposium leadership to confirm that all requirements for a QI project have been met.  If your abstract is accepted for ABIM MOC points, it will also be awarded 20 CME or CNE credits. At the time of abstract notification, the first author of eligible abstracts will receive information on how to submit to ASCO for ABIM points and CNE/CME credit. The first author is responsible for sharing this with coauthors who wish to apply for points/credit. 

For more information on abstracts and MOC points, please see Abstract FAQs.
