When you report Journal-Based activities in PARS, report each article as one activity. For hours of instruction, specify the amount of time required to complete the activity. The number of participants should equal the total number of individuals who completed the activity.
For example, a provider produces a journal that contains an article that is associated with an activity. Twenty physicians read the article, reflect on the content, and complete questions related to the content of the article. The physicians spend 1 hour on this activity. In PARS, the provider would report this as a Journal-Based activity with 20 physician participants, and 1 hour of instruction.
