More Activities Will Count for EBP CEUs

The BOC is pleased to announce new activities that will qualify for Evidence Based Practice (EBP) CEUs during the 2016-2017 reporting period. The expanded list will help Athletic Trainers (ATs) receive credit for activities that rely on EBP principles but were not previously counted under this category.

Following are newly-eligible EBP activities:

New Ways to Earn EBP CEUs
Qualifying journal quizzes that were previously counted in Category A
Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) Category 1 CME programs offered by BOC Approved Providers and pre-approved by the BOC
Authorship of a peer-reviewed journal article addressing patient-oriented clinical research or translational research
Post-certification coursework from a CAATE accredited AT post professional program
Accredited medical or healthcare provider residency or fellowship with a focus closely related to athletic training
Graduate of a PhD/EdD/DSc/DAT program may qualify if dissertation has a narrow focus of athletic training

ATs can search the BOC’s new online directory to find all BOC approved home studies and live events, including EBP Category programs. The directory is continuously updated.

BOC Approved Providers are urged to review emails and other communications from the BOC to learn more about this expansion.

Complete information on eligible EBP Category programs is available in the 2016-2017 Certification Maintenance Requirements document.
