Registration for the KSA is in conjunction with registration for the Annual Meeting & Winter Refresher


This activity focuses on diagnosing chronic pain syndromes in family medicine, identify pharmacologic appropriate therapy for specific conditions, including painful diabetic neuropathy, osteoarthritis, trigeminal neuralgia, and fibromyalgia, describe the use of active modalities such as exercise and physical therapy in the treatment of chronic pain, recommend appropriate pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic options for the treatment of functional chronic pain conditions, explain the indications, risks, and monitoring recommendations for long-term opioid pain medications

Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act – Individuals who need to self-report time spent training to fulfill the requirement should note that the ABFM Pain Medicine KSA has approximately two-thirds of the 60 total questions which address the topics of appropriate opioid prescribing, substance use disorders in those with concurrent pain, effective pain treatment planning, and substance misuse. The ABFM Pain Medicine KSA offers up to 8 credits of accredited CME. Hours reported should reflect the time spent in the activity.

Knowledge Self-Assessment (KSA)

The Maryland Academy of Family Physicians is excited to announce an American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM)-endorsed Family Medicine Certification knowledge self-assessment (KSA) group study focused on Pain Medicine. This program is limited to the first 30 members who register. Additional registrants after 30 will be placed on a wait list. Wait-listed registrants will be refunded in full if they do not get into the session.

Completion of this KSA will provide participants with 10 certification points towards their ABFM certification requirement. In addition, this activity has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 8 live Prescribed continuing medical education credits by the American Academy of Family Physicians.

How Does it Work:

Participants will use an online polling system to work through KSA questions with out palliative care expert.

Our main goal is to pass the exam, with an expert speaker offering assistance when questions arise.

First, questions will be displayed giving participants approximately 30 seconds to respond (time varies based on speed of participant response).

Next, results will be displayed and discussed.

Finally, answers will be submitted as a group and individuals will be credited for completion of the knowledge self-assessment, once evaluations have been submitted.
