Activities Not Eligible for CME Credit
- 50% of the total activity content does not meet the eligibility criteria for AAFP CME credit.
- Activities with a primary purpose of personal enrichment for the physician, e.g., wellness issues, management, retirement planning, estate planning, insurance or taxes.
- Activities that may be educational but are part of a physician's professional responsibility, such as time spent reviewing patient records (unless incorporated into a formal CME activity as part of a continuous quality improvement [CQI] module), participating in individual physician quality assurance/peer review activities, taking a certification examination, doing community and public educational activities, or serving as a medical missionary.
- Activities that provide historical perspective on medicine, unless the activity shows relevance to current medical issues.
- Supplemental reading that is not provided as an integral part of a CME activity.
- Activities designed to integrate or promote the use of dangerous medical practices. Dangerous medical practices are diagnostic and therapeutic interventions in which the risks substantially outweigh the benefits to patients.
- CME content is ineligible for credit if it promotes to physicians, or teaches physicians how to use, diagnostic and therapeutic interventions deemed dangerous or ineffective by one or more of the following:
- The COCPD
- Findings (meta-analyses or systematic reviews) reported by sources acceptable to the COCPD
- Governmental agencies and institutions of the United States
