Diplomates now choose ONE Clinical Module OR Feedback Module activity to complete the PIP Unit.
For the Feedback Module, clinically active diplomates obtain personal feedback regarding their own clinical performance using questionnaire/surveys. The Feedback Module consists of three steps to complete within a 24-month period.
Step A: Initial assessment of patient or peer feedback
Collect initial feedback from ONE of the following options:
Diplomates may choose a feedback module from the Approved Products List, or use an ABPN feedback form, or submit their institution’s patient survey or peer evaluation for individual preapproval. The feedback forms must address the six general competencies.
Step B: Identify and implement improvement
Step C: Reassessment of patient or peer feedback
* Patients may include those for which the diplomate supervises the care of another provider (e.g., resident).
**Peers may include other professional healthcare staff such as counselors, nurses, physicians, psychologists, and social workers.
Note: Only those diplomates in the 2013-2015 C-MOC block must complete BOTH a Clinical Module and a Feedback Module (patient or peer survey) for that specific C-MOC block.
