Patient Safety

Requirement Details

We have further simplified the Patient Safety requirement!

Recognizing that Patient Safety is embedded within most vehicles used to fulfill MOC requirements, the ABD eliminated the stand-alone Patient Safety requirement on the MOC Table in September 2018. All diplomates showing this requirement as Overdue or Upcoming were given a waiver. Diplomates who previously documented a stand-alone Patient Safety exercise on their MOC Table were automatically extended a 25-point Self-Assessment courtesy credit.
