Overview

The FOCUS Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Workbook is a collection of practical and evidence-based materials to help psychiatrists develop and maintain a sound, up-to-date foundation of medical knowledge and clinical expertise, ultimately improving patient care. Designed to be a "one stop" resource to meet MOC requirements, the book aims to help psychiatrists evaluate their knowledge and clinical practice; initiate a program of quality improvement; and advance their assessment, communication, diagnostic, and treatment skills.

To achieve these goals, the workbook includes: • A Self-Assessment test consisting of 50 multiple-choice questions on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), designed to test current knowledge and its clinical application, thus helping the clinician identify areas of competence and those requiring additional study and improvement.• A Performance in Practice Clinical Module, a guided practice improvement program designed to meet Part 4 American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) MOC requirements for clinical modules. This module is divided into three stages: Chart Review, Improvement Plan, and a second or retrospective Chart Review.• Resources for use in an improvement plan, including a Real-Time Assessment Tool for Patients With PTSD, the executive summary of the APA Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Patients With PTSD, and a selection of influential publications on posttraumatic stress disorder to help psychiatrists stay current with advances in research and treatment.• Peer and Patient Survey Forms for use in the Feedback Modules (Part 4 of MOC)• A detailed description and explanation of the MOC Program as presented by the ABPN, including details on record keeping, phase-in schedule, and auditing. Exercises provided in the workbook are to be completed both in the book and online. Continuing medical education (CME) activities were developed in compliance with ABPN reporting requirements, and credit for these activities is recorded online at www.apaeducation.org. The FOCUS program aims to educate physicians, refresh their knowledge and skills, and facilitate the documentation of their ongoing professional development and competency.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven T. Herron, MD (Assurance Health and Wellness)
Description: This is the second volume in a series designed not only to aid in understanding and learning about a specific diagnosis, but also to provide a framework for maintenance of certification (MOC) activities for any board certified psychiatrist.
Purpose: The editors state that this is intended "as a single comprehensive tool for the busy physician to meet recertification requirements of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN), focused on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)."
Audience: Meant primarily for active mental health clinicians, this book is also quite useful for anyone wishing to learn more about PTSD from a resource that is brief but comprehensive.
Features: In addition to the "influential publications" regarding PTSD it provides, the book includes a discussion of psychopharmacologic interventions used to treat PTSD, a list of guidelines for the treatment of PTSD, and MOC (Part 2 and 4) activities, as well as a real-time assessment tool to help readers document participation in an improvement activity. An appendix provides more detail about the MOC for the ABPN.
Assessment: One of the biggest challenges facing practicing psychiatrists is fulfilling the requirements of MOC for board recertification while simultaneously balancing their professional and personal schedules. The American Psychiatric Association has decided to provide psychiatrists with tools to ease the process, and this work is one in a hoped-for long line of similar manuals. This is an excellent review that provides step-by-step instructions on how to submit the information upon completion of the manual. Overall, it is a worthwhile read for clinicians, even those not needing the credit for MOC activities.
