What has been done to improve the QI&CPD Program?

The 2014-16 QI&CPD triennium features a number of developmental enhancements that will be offered during the triennium period, including:

  • Personalised ongoing support – Program coordinators in state faculties and RACGP staff available to assist in meeting your learning requirements
  • High quality education providers – access to an extensive range of well-established accredited activity providers and thousands of accredited activities delivered in a GP relevant format
  • Enhancing patient care -  the introduction of quality improvement (QI) requirement for GP strengthens the effectiveness of the RACGP QI&CPD Program in accordance to international best practice
  • Online system improvements – Constant improvements to our intuitive online platform will be offered to ensure your ability to find, record and monitor ongoing QI&CPD activities

Do I have to use the RACGP’s CPD system?

In order to maintain specialist recognition as a GP, and therefore vocational listing by Medicare Australia as well as recognition by AHPRA on the specialist register, all medical practitioners are required to meet the standards for CPD set by the relevant AMC accredited college, in this instance the RACGP.

Medical practitioners who are not on the vocational or specialist register must complete a minimum of 50 hours of CPD per year and may choose a self-directed program.

In recognition of the RACGP’s credibility as the AMC accredited standard setters for medical practitioner CPD requirements, the RACGP is a recognised CPD auditor for AHPRA. The RACGP’s QI&CPD Program streamlines the administration of this requirement for its participants throughout the triennium period and in times of audit.

The RACGP now supports GPs with flexible opportunities to reflect and transform conventional education activities into actions that demonstrate effectiveness in enhancing patient care in the 2014–16 QI&CPD triennium. RACGP professional development activities, accredited activities and compliance (point statements) are recognised by AHPRA, GPA Accreditation Plus and AGPAL as approved evidence of complying with legislative requirements set by these professional bodies.
