In response to member feedback, the RACGP has launched an intuitive new CPD platform with a stronger focus on education. RACGP members will now be able to more easily access and report continuing professional development (CPD) activities through the new, easy-to-use myCPD platform.
The new quick log feature allows GPs to quickly submit professional development activities undertaken as part of their daily work, including reading medical journals, running practice meetings and listening to medical podcasts, as well as other external activities not directly focused on their clinical practice.GPs can upload supporting documents and photographs thus removing the administrative burden often involved in submitting CPD activities.
The CPD Program criteria has also been broadened to recognise the activities in which GPs engage as part of their daily work, including reading medical journals, running practice meetings and listening to medical podcasts, as well as other external activities not directly focused on their clinical practice.
The myCPD dashboard makes it easier for GPs to search for education options relevant to their interests, as well as browse an evolving library of resources. All CPD activities on offer have been developed in accordance with the colleges new CPD Education Standards, so GPs can be assured of the quality of activities.
GPs will be able to access myCPD either from their desktop, phone or tablet, making it easier to log and track CPD throughout the day. Find out more about the new features and benefits of the RACGP CPD platform here: www.racgp.org.au/yourcpdhome
