  • Internet Point of Care Search

    Internet Point of Care Search CME activity extends and collaborates with PediaLink's Learning Plan by providing online search capabilities to research clinical questions. In contrast to searching the Internet for general information, the concept of an Internet Point of Care Search activity describes structured, self-directed, online learning by physicians related to topics relevant to their clinical practice. Physicians must articulate their clinical question, document the professional, peer-reviewed sources consulted among those identified by the Academy, and indicate the application of information to practice in order to earn AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. The Internet Point of Care Search CME activity is available to all fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) as a free member benefit (AAP FAAP membership or PediaLink subscription required).
