WHAT IS A COURSE?

Courses for the seven sections are based on curricula that are used by experienced and board-certified professionals from the various disciplines in laboratory medicine and approved by the NEJM Knowledge+ team. Each course consists of three separate components: learning objectives, probes, and learning resources.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Learning objectives are granular and utilize Bloom’s taxonomy. They range in complexity from describe or define to deduce and analyze. Each course contains 100-150 learning objectives to cover the topic of interest.

PROBES

There are nine different types of questions to choose from including multiple choice, fill in the blank, matching, and a clinical case. Morphologies, chromatograms, tables, electrophoretic patterns and other images can be used in these questions. There are at least two questions for each learning objective. Based on continuous analyses of how learners are responding, more depth will be developed.

LEARNING RESOURCES

Learning resources provide explanation for the answer in the form of a video, image, pathway, text (possibly read by a professional reader) and they also include a reference to support the explanation. There is at least one learning resource for each learning objective. Based on continuous analyses of how learners are responding, more depth will be developed where appropriate.

HOW DO I CLAIM ACCENT® CREDIT?

AACC designates this online enduring material for 1.0 ACCENT® credit hours for every 8 questions answered correctly. AACC is an approved provider of continuing education (CE) for clinical laboratory scientists licensed in states that require documentation of CE. ACCENT® credit is also recognized by several organizations: AAB, ABCC, ACS, AMT, ASCLS, ASCP, ASM, CAP, IFCC and NRCC. AACC Learning Lab modules are not currently accredited to offer credits for California or Florida license renewal.
