    Address Your Patients' Cardiometabolic Concerns

    Satisfy your Family Medicine Certification's Performance Improvement and Self-Assessment activities—all in one program. Improve care among your patient panel with cardiometabolic conditions.

    Earn up to 107.5 AAFP Prescribed credits.

    PerformanceNavigator blends live, expert-led didactic instruction with collaborative group-learning activities and easy-to-use online tools relating to diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia to help you meet all of your ABFM Performance Improvement Activities, Self-Assessment Activities, and CME requirements for one 3-year stage in one efficient program.

    Learn the latest, evidence-based clinical information on diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia, and implement interventions to improve cardiometabolic care. Benefit from collaboration with your colleagues from across the country, online through the PerformanceNavigator Social Learning Community as well as at the livestream experience.

    Note: This activity is ideally designed for physicians and nurse practitioners who have a regular patient panel of 20 or more patients. If this minimum requirement is not met, physicians will not be able to receive the 20 Performance Improvement points nor 20 CME credits from the ABFM.
