C-cert Activity Description

The Continuous Certification (C-cert) activities provide subspecialty learning and knowledge assessment to ensure that diplomates are staying up to date on the latest science, treatments, and therapeutics relating to their subspecialty. The annual activities include: 1) reading the subspecialty  journal articles, and 2) taking and passing the 25-question online post-reading quiz to assess knowledge gained from the journal article content. 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this UCNS C-cert activity, participants will be able to:
  • Diagnose the varying neuropsychiatric symptoms that can occur after medical interventions and know the strategies to mitigate the effects of these symptoms
  • More accurately diagnose and differentiate Alzheimer’s disease from other commonly occurring dementias, thus providing earlier and more accurate interventions and multi-disciplinary treatments
  • More accurately identify causes of hallucinations in patients with neurological illnesses and provide accurate treatment interventions
  • More quickly identify neuropsychiatric symptoms originating after COVID-19 survival and thus provide more timely treatments

Core Competencies

This UCNS C-cert activity covers the following core competency:
  • Medical Knowledge
