Q: I already registered for and attended the live stream virtual conference that took place April 2-3, 2020 - do I have to register for the lecture series as well?

A: No. The lecture series is included in the package for the live stream virtual conference registrants in appreciation of their flexibility as WAPA shifted from a live to virtual program. 

Q: How does virtual CME work? 

A: Registrants will have access to a webpage that hosts all of the lectures. Viewers can watch the lectures at their convenience, and will be prompted to complete an electronic evaluation following each lecture. The completion of the evaluation serves as part of proof of participation and is necessary to claim CME credit

Q: How / when will I get my CME credits? 

A: WAPA will submit the list of verified participants to the NCCPA by July 3, 2020. Attendees will be able to log into NCCPA directly and log the credits for the sessions they attended. Please note that the number of credits claimed should correspond to the number of evaluation surveys completed.
