Performance-in-Practice Structured Abstract Tutorial

The ACCME has produced a tutorial about the Performance-in-Practice Structured Abstract. The structured abstract is a tool introduced in 2014 in response to engagement with the CME community. CME providers may use the abstract to verify performance-in-practice during the accreditation process. This tutorial provides the rationale for the creation of the tool and instructions for its use. Use of the ACCME Performance-in-Practice Structured Abstract is optional. The goal with the abstract is to simplify, clarify, and be explicit about the information that the ACCME is looking for as performance-in-practice evidence during the accreditation process.
