CPD program-level requirements
The RACGP has tools and resources available to assist you with the new CPD program-level requirements specific to culturally safe practice, health inequities, professionalism and ethical practice. The RACGP CPD Standards provides guidance to CPD providers and GPs about the program-level requirements.
The new MBA CPD Registration Standard requires all registered medical practitioners to engage in CPD activities relevant to:
- culturally safe practice
- health inequities
- professionalism and ethical practice
You should consider inclusion of these CPD program-level requirements into your Professional Development Plan (PDP), however, there is no prescribed specific CPD hours completion associated with these activities.
You can find a range of these activities through the ‘Browse’ function of your myCPD home.
All CPD program-level requirements are aligned to the Good medical practice: a code of conduct for doctors in Australia (the code). The ‘code’ describes what is expected of all doctors registered to practise medicine in Australia. It sets out the principles that characterise good medical practice and makes explicit the standards of ethical and professional conduct expected of doctors by their professional peers and the community.
The 2022 RACGP Curriculum and Syllabus for Australian General Practice also includes the CPD program-level requirements e.g., there is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health unit, Domain 4 relates to Professional and Ethical Role and Domain 3 covers Health inequity.
