Delegates wishing to obtain CPD points can self-claim, through The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, by self-recording based on the following guidelines.
What is self-recording?
A GP can register a total of 20 Category Two points (Capped at 20 points for the triennium).
The QI&CPD program recognises the benefits for GPs participating in events, which may not be formally accredited by the QI&CPD Program, for CPD point allocation that they find personally valuable for their individual learning needs.
After logging in to the RACGP website, use the ‘self record your activities’ option that is available in the main side menu. This online notification should be updated as unaccredited activities are completed. Once a total of 10 hours of unaccredited activities has been entered, an option to submit the self-recorded notification to the QI&CPD Program will become available. Submitting the notification to the QI&CPD Program is capped at 20 Category Two points towards your total triennium requirement.
Delegates also have the option to complete an Individual Active Learning Module (ALM) (40 Category One points), if you consider this activity meets the criteria, of a pre-disposing activity followed by a minimum 6 hours of interactive education and a reflective activity.
PLEASE NOTE: CPD points can only be claimed based on attendance at the scientific program sessions. Sponsored workshops do not attract CPD points.
