    If your dialysis organization is not listed, you are not eligible to participate in this program in 2016. Additional dialysis organizations may be added in 2017.

    3. Select RPA QAPI MOC program and complete the registration.
    4. Indicate which QAPI meetings you attended as well as the topic for each. Nephrologists must attend 5 QAPI meetings in a 6-month period to claim MOC credits.
    5. QAPI information must be submitted by December 24, 2016 for the 2016 program year.
    6. The dialysis organization or facility will verify your participation.
    7. Following verification by the dialysis organization or facility, RPA will transmit your participation data to ABIM, and ABIM will issue the MOC credit.
    8. You will be notified that their MOC credit has been assigned via an automated email from ABIM. You may also access their Self-Evaluation Activity Report on the ABIM website to confirm the MOC credit has been granted.

    The program is $50 per year, per nephrologist. You do not need to be a RPA member to participate.
