Criteria for Approval of Historical Activities for CEUs
If you are submitting a Type I or II application, or
an Annual Meeting abstract for an activity that is historical in
content, the following criteria apply:
Please follow the format outlined in the Type I,
Type II, or Annual Meeting Call for Abstracts, as appropriate. In
addition, please include the following information, specific to an
activity with historical content, as indicated:
Approximately 40 words to summarize each presenter's
educational and research background that specifically relates to the
topic. This should include information about the presenter(s) relevant
to the proposed presentation. For example, the presenter has studied the
history of midwifery in America.
For the ACNM Annual Meeting, the abstract should include:
At least three objectives for the session. Sample objectives for historical presentation:
1. Apply a broad historical framework to contemporary health care delivery.
Must include some current references from peer-reviewed journals. When historical methodology is used, many of the sources in the bibliography date from the period of study. This is often true for many of the primary sources, but may also relate to the secondary source material as well. The author should give a clear and comprehensive explanation of the references and their significance to the study so that reviewers may see that the reference material is relevant and appropriate to the presentation.
A sample Type I Application for an historical presentation has been developed to illustrate the criteria for approval of historical activities for ACNM CEUs. Any questions about the criteria should be directed to [email protected] or (240) 485-1846.
