> Internet Point of Care (iPOC) is a new CME initiative that rewards Physicians and Nurses using online evidence-based Library Resources by documenting their research results to improve patient care.

> iPOC is a self-directed learning process where healthcare professionals take the initiative and the responsibility for what occurs. Physicians or nurses select, manage, and assess their own learning activities; which can be done at the place of work by defining a self-identified clinical question using the Online Evidence-Based Resources that are accessible through Rashid Medical Library.

> The outcome is a change in the knowledge and performance that can be applied to patient care and clinical practice.
