Thank you for attending the 2020 Education Forum. We hope you found the live event a valuable and worthwhile experience. Because the Forum was held virtually, we were able to record the majority of the sessions, which means attendees can take advantage of the content until January 1, 2021 and earn Category 1 CME.

Requirements for Awarding and Earning CME Credits

In order for PAEA to award CME for participating in the Forum, the Association must comply with the policies and procedures established by the AAPA. Forum registrants must exercise honesty and integrity when claiming CME credit for participating in CME activities. Like an in-person event, PAEA is required to track and provide evidence of each registrant’s participation in CME activities.

To claim CME for a CME activity, attendees must participate in the activity. PAEA defines participation as completing all of the following steps: logging into the CME activity, viewing the CME activity, and submitting a completed evaluation. PAEA tracks participation by logins and completion of evaluations.
