CME/MOC Information

The ASH-SAP is designed for self-directed learning and review through utilization of a textbook with case studies, key points, graphics, and glossaries. The activity is self-paced. Learners review and study the materials and then complete related multiple-choice questions in a separate question and answer book for self-assessment; the question and answer book also provides rationales for the answers for additional review and self-reflection. Extensive bibliographies are provided in the textbook as sources of information and for future reference.

The ASH-SAP, Seventh Edition, is available in a variety of reading and testing formats to best suit your learning and certification needs. All formats contain the following:

  • Full-color text that contains the latest advancements in hematology
  • Additional case studies within the text to further illustrate and emphasize the clinical applications of core knowledge
  • Access to the companion website that contains the information from the printed text but adds an interactive element, allowing users to move back and forth between questions and critiques, chapter text, and illustrative slides

The online material contains the full content of the printed book presented in a searchable format with hyperlinks to other educational resources, including Hematology, the ASH Education Program, and the ASH Image Bank. Access to the online version is included with the purchase price of the print package. The printed question and answer book is available only with the print package.

Support

This activity is supported by educational funding provided by Pharmacyclics and Seattle Genetics. 

Target audience

The ASH-SAP is a high-quality educational product offering up-to-date information in the field of hematology for hematologists, medical oncologists, internists, pediatricians, and hematology-oncology fellows and trainees.

Educational objectives

The self-assessment program’s goals are to provide timely clinical updates on new developments in hematology, to help practicing physicians prepare for recertification, and to serve as a tool for board review.

Upon completion of the ASH-SAP, Seventh Edition, the learner will be able to achieve the following learning objectives corresponding to the six online tests:

1. Laboratory Hematology and Cellular Therapy (16 credits)

a. Define the properties and methods of identification of hematopoietic stem cells.

b. Develop an appropriate testing algorithm for patients with cytopenias.

c. Develop risk stratification for patients for the appropriate referral for hematopoietic stem cell therapy.

2. Consultative Hematology (6 credits)

a. Apply up-to-date diagnostic and management techniques for bleeding disorders in women.

b. Evaluate and treat hematologic complications of pregnancy.

c. Address common hematologic consultative questions in surgical, solid organ transplant, pediatric patients; and hematologic complications of non-hematologic diseases.

3. Anemia, Iron Physiology, and Iron Disorders (11 credits)

a. Describe diagnostic approaches to and management of a patient with anemia.

b. Describe iron physiology and the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of iron disorders.

4. Thrombosis and Hemostasis (11 credits)

a. Evaluate and manage a patient with a bleeding diathesis using appropriate diagnostic testing and therapeutics.

b. Develop an appropriate diagnostic and management strategy for a patient with venous thromboembolism.

c. Describe the pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and diagnosis of inherited and acquired platelet disorders.

5. Myeloid Diseases (16 credits)

a. Determine the most appropriate diagnostic strategy, including molecular testing for a patient with a suspected or newly diagnosed myeloid disorder.

b. Choose optimal risk-stratified therapy for myeloid neoplasms and for congenital marrow failure syndromes.

Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada MOC Section 3

This activity is an accredited self-assessment program (Section 3) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada, and approved by Royal College Continuing Professional Development Unit.  You may claim a maximum of 30 hours (credits are automatically calculated).

La présente activité est un programme d’autoévaluation agréé (section 3), au sens que lui donne le programme de Maintien du certificat du Collège royal des médecins et chirurgiens du Canada; elle a été approuvée par l’Unité de DPC du Collège royal. Vous pouvez réclamer un maximum de 30heures (les credits seront calculés automatiquement).

Claiming CME and ABIM/ABP credit

The estimated time to complete this educational activity is 75 hours. To claim CME credit, all learners must complete the self-assessment test(s) of medical knowledge and a program evaluation, all of which are accessed through the ASH Academy (www.ashacademy.org). Learners with scores of 80% or better on the self-assessment tests are eligible to claim credit for the activity.

To facilitate personalized learning, the self-assessment for this product is divided into 6 subtests, each of which focuses on a subset of the hematologic field. Successful completion of each test earns the learner a portion of the total 75 credit hours. Learners claim CME and/or Continuing Certification credit for each test individually.

Each test may be taken in one sitting, or a learner may save their progress and complete the test at a later time.

On June 30, 2022, online access expires. This is also the last date for users to claim credit for this edition. For questions about credit, please contact the ASH Education Department at cme@hematology.org or call toll-free 866-828-1231 (within the United States only)
