What will now constitute as a CPD Accredited Activity for the 2020-22 triennium is not the same as a former Category 1 Activity and therefore the naming of these activities has been amended accordingly and in recognition of the difference.
The key variances are in the approval process and in the criteria against which the activities are developed.
All CPD Accredited Activities are individually reviewed and accredited by the RACGP to ensure each activity meets the new CPD Education Standards. A CPD Accredited Activity is an assurance of educational rigour and integrity.
CPD Activities are required to meet the same CPD Education Standards. The difference is that these activities are self-approved by the provider and the RACGP conducts random audits of these activities to assure their ongoing quality to expected standards.
