When you report Manuscript Review CME in PARS, report each journal for which the manuscript is being reviewed as an activity regardless of how many manuscripts there are and regardless of how many persons have reviewed manuscripts as CME. For hours of instruction, specify the amount of time you believe a learner would take to complete the Manuscript Review CME activity. The number of participants should reflect the total number of learners engaged in reviewing manuscripts as CME.
For example, a provider published one journal. During the course of the year, 25 physicians reviewed manuscripts for this journal. Each physician spent 2 hours on his/her review. In PARS, the provider would report this as 1 Manuscript Review CME activity, with 25 Physician Participants and 2 Hours of Instruction.
