Question of the Day: A Learning Success
Education, Research, and Methodology
S10 - Utilizing Varied Modalities to Impact Learning and Make Curricular Changes (3:30 PM-3:42 PM)
001
QOD, launched in 2020, provides daily board exam–style multiple-choice questions in two tracks: one for practicing neurologists and one for medical students. Questions for neurologists follow a yearly curriculum based on the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) content outline. Topics include a wide variety of neurology subspecialties. Each question is accompanied by a detailed rationale and current references, many of which are hyperlinked to peer-reviewed resources. Users can earn up to 29 self-assessment continuing medical education (SA-CME) per year, which is 2 SA-CME per 25 QOD questions. The ABPN has approved QOD as part of a comprehensive lifelong learning program.

To demonstrate the successful implementation of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Question of the Day (QOD) mobile application and its value to AAN members.

Data collected from QOD since April 2021 include activity by AAN member type, total active daily users, number of CME earned, and program evaluation data.
Total users per year were 5.6K, 9.5K, and 11K for 2020, 2021, and 2022, respectively, with practicing neurologists (25%) and junior (59%) AAN members the most engaged, and with participation from 123 countries. Average daily users increased from 1.4K in 2021 to 1.5K in 2022, with weekly (2.7K) and monthly (4.3K) usage comparable in 2021 and 2022. In total, 8.7K hours of SA-CME have been claimed in 2022 compared with 5.8K in 2021. Satisfaction has remained high since launch and is currently 99%. Users report that the questions are useful, fair, balanced, and of high quality.
Since its introduction in 2020, QOD has become a very popular, effective continuing education program for AAN members. There has been substantial growth of new users each year while maintaining a strong contingency of daily users.
