Diplomates now choose ONE Clinical Module OR Feedback Module activity to complete the PIP Unit.
With a Feedback Module, preapproval is not needed if the questionnaire/survey meets general competencies. The six general competencies to be reviewed on the feedback forms are interpersonal and communications skills, medical knowledge, patient care, practice-based learning and improvement, professionalism, and system-based practices.
A diplomate can collect feedback using ONE of the following options:
Model feedback forms are available on the ABPN Approved Products List at no cost.
Step A: Initial assessment of patient or peer feedback
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.
