How does the LiveStream work?
A: The LiveStream allows you to earn 30 Credits from the comfort of your home or office. You may listen to engaging presentations, view the speakers’ presentation slides, and participate in Q&A sessions. You will be given login credentials to the LiveStream Portal prior to the conference start date. You may test your connection by viewing a test video in the LiveStream Portal, which will be posted until the start of the conference. You may view the LiveStream on your Smartphone, Tablet, or Computer. You will receive Live Credits for the LiveStream as it is a live broadcast of our Conference. You will receive further instructions for the credit claiming process upon the start of the conference.
What are the technical requirements for viewing the LiveStream?
A: Generally, if you are able to watch YouTube or Netflix, you will have no issue. The following information is from our technical team regarding technical requirements.

Can I ask the speakers questions if I am live streaming?
A: Yes, you may use our Q&A platform to ask the speakers questions in real time during our LiveStream Rebroadcasts with LIVE Q&A.
Can I earn credits from watching the recordings?
A: Because we offer live CME credits, credits may only be earned through participation during the LiveStream or In-Person. The recordings are intended to be used for reference and review of the material only, and do not provide credits.
How long will the recordings be available to watch?
A: The recording will be posted for 60 days.
What is the difference between the LiveStream Rebroadcasts and LiveStream Rebroadcasts with LIVE Q&A?
A: The LiveStream Rebroadcasts with LIVE Q&A feature the opportunity to ask our speakers questions in real time. The LiveStream Rebroadcasts that do not include LIVE Q&A feature pre-recorded Q&A sessions that include the most popular questions from our previous conferences.
If I sign up for the LiveStream, will the CME credits still count as ‘live’?
A: Yes, because the conference is live streamed, the credits count as ‘live’ credits.
How do I access the presentation slides?

Do I have the opportunity to ask the speaker questions during the conference?
A: Both our In-Person Conferences and LiveStream Rebroadcast Conferences with LIVE Q&A will feature the opportunity to ask speakers questions.
Do I need to sign in every day?
A: Yes, you must sign in daily on the sign in sheets provided at the Registration Desk in order to receive CME credits for that day. If you are live streaming the conference, there is no need to sign in.
If I am not attending the full conference, how many CME credits will I earn?
A: Our conferences offer 30 Live CME Credits. You will earn 8.25 CME credits per day on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and 5.25 CME credits on Sunday, totaling 30 Credits for the full conference. This applies to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, AAFP Prescribed Credits, and ABIM MOC II Points.
