How the Virtual KSA Works
In order to provide an ABFM-endorsed KSA group study session, the ABFM requires the use of a robust webinar system that provides physicians with the ability to fully contribute and be monitored for participation. The webinar system allows participants to pose questions to the speaker, take part in question and answer polls, and chat with fellow KSA participants. The ABFM also requires that the program administrators embed “code words” into the webinar slides to ensure that participants are paying attention throughout the duration of the program. You will be asked to capture these code words on an evaluation tool that will be sent to you in advance.
The most important function of the webinar is the polling process which helps to determine group consensus on what answer should be submitted on the ABFM’s answer sheet. Instructions on this important process will be detailed prior to the start of the program with plenty of time for participants to test the system.
In a nutshell, questions will be displayed, read verbally by the moderator, and then opened for participants to respond. Next, poll results will be displayed and discussed with guidance from the expert speaker. If consensus on an assessment answer is not clear, a re-poll may be necessary. The OAFP staff will be working in the background to collect group answers on the approved ABFM answer sheet. Finally, the answer sheet will be submitted as a group to the ABFM and individuals will be credited for completion of the KSA once event evaluations are received within 72 hours.
