Q. What educational activities can GPs claim?
A. Activities must be a minimum of 6 hours ( can be 2 X 3 hour sessions) and be relevant to the GP's procedural /emergency medicine field of practice.

Q. What types of educational activities can be claimed?
A. Both formal (workshops, courses, scientific conferences) and informal (supervised clinical attachments) modes of delivery can attract a grant.

Q. Can GPs claim for activities which have not received QA&CPD accreditation from the RACGP or ACRRM?
