[0.25 CME/CE/CPEU credits] This case study examines best practices for a preterm, very-low-birthweight infant with suspected NEC. It also explores strategies for examining and addressing the patient’s nutritional needs and responses every step of the way—from birth to discharge home. Note: This case study is supported by an Abbott Nutrition education grant.

AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM is generally accepted as equivalent to EACCME credit in Europe through a reciprocity agreement between the American Medical Association and the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).

HA-AD recognizes many other accreditation systems as equivalent. Participants in CE accredited by one of these recognized bodies can count the CE for Category 1 credit hours, just as they would if they had attended a HA-AD accredited event. The American Medical Association Physician Recognition Award (AMA-PRA) is recognized as an UAE Accepted Accrediting Organization with an equivalent system.
