Program Evaluation

Revised June 2018

Participants must be provided with an opportunity to evaluate individual sessions and overall CPD activity. The evaluation system must provide participants with the opportunity to:

  • Identify whether the individual session and overall CPD activity learning objectives were met
  • Identify whether the content was balanced and free of commercial or other inappropriate bias
  • Identify the potential impact of the CPD activity for their practice


Required Questions:

  1. Did the program meet the stated learning objectives:
    □  Yes            □  No         □  N/A     |     If no, please explain: (text box)
  2. Did you perceive any bias, whether industry or other, in any part of the program?
    □  Yes            □  No     |     If yes, please explain: (text box)

(Optional) Did the program content offer balanced views across all relevant options related to the content area?

It is a requirement of the National Standard that program be evaluated for balance when therapeutic options are being discussed. The question is marked "Optional" for programs in which no therapeutic options are discussed (ie. faculty development, quality improvement, etc.)

(Optional) Can you identify any barriers to incorporating what you learned today into your practice?

Required for Mainpro+ only: Develop a strategy to identify barriers to practice change. Using a question on the evaluation form to explore individuals’ knowledge, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviour is one way to do this.
