In an effort to enhance the participant’s knowledge of this topic, you are required to develop and submit a handout, such as PowerPoint® slides, and an outline, references or key points (limited to one page). See page 27 for guidelines to assist you in developing appropriate handouts or visual aids. An outline, references and key points example is located on page 28. Your handout and outline, references or key points are due 20 days prior to the presentation. Educational materials that are part of the PCE activity, such as slides, abstracts and handouts, cannot contain any advertising, corporate logo, trade name or a product-group message of an ACPE-defined commercial interest.
To evaluate the level of competency attained during knowledge-based activities, a posttest will be provided to participants. Faculty should submit questions in the multiple-choice format and include only four possible answer choices (unless true/false, in which case, only two choices are needed). Posttest questions should be directly related to the learning objectives. See below for the required number of questions, based on how long the activity is. Faculty should also provide feedback after each question explaining why the chosen answer is correct. Below is an example. A posttest is not required for application-based activities. Posttest questions, answers and feedback must be submitted no later than 20 days before the activity.
Example Posttest Question with Correct Answer and Feedback:
To have a positive CAM-ICU, patients must have all four delirium characteristics: acute onset and fluctuating
course, inattention, disorganized thinking and altered level of consciousness.
Feedback: Answer B is the most appropriate response because patients must have three out of four
characteristics. To have a positive CAM-ICU screen, patients must have acute onset and fluctuating course,
evidence of inattention and either signs of disorganized thinking OR altered level of consciousness.
For application-based activities, case studies must be submitted no later than 20 days before the activity.
