What is SNMMI's LLSAP?

The SNMMI developed the Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment Program (LLSAP) to fulfill Part 2 of the MOC requirements under the leadership of Alan H. Maurer, MD, SNMMI Chair of the Education Program Development Committee; Dominique Delbeke, MD, PhD, Chair of the Maintenance of Certification Committee; Pamela Colman, Director of Education and Lisa Lefebvre, Associate Director, e-Learning and MOC.

The SNMMI LLSAP is an essential nuclear medicine self-assessment program that allows nuclear medicine healthcare professionals to assess their medical knowledge and competency in patient care, practice-based learning and improvement, and systems-based practice. The program will ensure that participants improve the quality of health care by integrating nuclear medicine and molecular imaging in everyday applications.

Self-Assessment Module Components
Each SAM consists of the following components:

Syllabus — focuses on the latest information and developments (last ~ 3 years). Syllabi may include the following formats:

  • Links to literature, e.g., review articles and Web sites
  • Links to live meeting Web casts
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Multimedia (video or animation)
  • Tables and figures

Multiple-choice, board-type questions with critiques and Interactive case studies:

  • Full functional display program
  • Clinical background, images, and multiple-choice questions with critiques

CE Credit Information

CE credit is available for physicians and technologists.

Participants will use an electronic question format to earn credit toward the maintenance of certification at no extra charge. The American Board of Nuclear Medicine has approved the modules for SAM credit. Each topic will consist of multiple choice questions derived from the content discussed. For all correct or incorrect questions, participants will link to the answer and a critique explaining why the option was right or wrong. Participants can save their work and complete a topic or portions in one or more different times depending on their needs. Credit is based on the educational process for this activity; participants will receive credit by completing all of the steps for each topic. Because this is a learning activity, correct and incorrect answers receive the same level of CE credit. After completing each topic, answers will be submitted through a link for the topic. CE credit will be awarded and transferred to CE transcripts for SNMMI members. Participants will also be able to print a CE certificate for their records.

Target Audience
The LLSAP is designed for all nuclear medicine specialists and other physicians and technologists who practice diagnostic and/or other therapeutic nuclear medicine.

The LLSAP provides a comprehensive review of nuclear medicine, including the latest advances in molecular imaging prepared by experts, and is ideal for anyone assessing their medical knowledge and competency in health care.

Educational Objectives
Upon completion of LLSAP modules, participants will be able to:

  • Assess their medical knowledge and competency in patient care
  • Improve the quality of health care they provide their patients by managing nuclear medicine and molecular imaging in everyday applications
  • Assess their knowledge of PET/CT, diagnostic CT, and other clinical applications of the latest technologies
  • Improve practice performance
  • Meet Part 2 of the MOC requirements
