Getting Credit

There are two cases and two post-tests in this program. You may select one case for a single credit, or you may complete both for two credits.

Each case takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. Upon completing a case, you may immediately link to the post-test of 10 questions (a score of 70% is required TO RECEIVE CREDIT), or you may return to take the test later.

See instructions at AAPA web site for details about receiving your CME certificate for this module.

Getting Started

Depending on your computer's system specifications, you may be prompted to upgrade or download specific software components in order for the courseware to perform optimally. Simply follow the instructions within the dialogue boxes on the program screen. You may test your computer to see if you have ALL required applications before you begin the program.

  1. Check that your computer meets the minimum system requirements (this is a Windows-only program).
  2. Check that your computer allows application download and installation for the required program and media players (you may need to work with your IT department).
  3. Close other programs to allow adequate system resources for the interactive cases.
  4. Review supporting materials then select a link to begin the Julia or Olivia cases. (Note: It may take a few minutes for the program to load and begin)
  5. Select installation options during the initial courseware launch.
