For family physician credits you will need a UBC Faculty of Medicine member and a CFPC member on your planning committee.
- Disclosure forms are completed by each member of the planning committee and submitted to UBC CPD for review
- The planning committee reviews the disclosures completed by each of the presenters and ensures appropriate conflict of interest (COI) management
To focus the intent of the objective please refer to (and distribute to your speakers) the attached Verbs for Learning Objectives list and replace with clear action verbs such as: Identify, demonstrate, review, discuss, describe, etc.
Once a program is approved, UBC CPD sends a notice to the Royal College and/or CFPC as we are an accredited provider for these Colleges.
When physicians attend an event, they receive a certificate from you with statement of accreditation as issued to you in your formal approval. Please visit the certificate link for how to give credits to physicians for your event: ubccpd.ca/accreditation/certificates
With this certificate, physicians log in to their Royal College or CFPC account and enter their credits and the name of the event accordingly.
You may use a sign in sheet, but it is not mandatory. Each physician should claim only those credits he/she actually spent in the activity – the onus is on the physicians to be accountable for their own learning.
To know what kind of credits you need, look at your target audience: do specialists attend, or family physicians or both?
Credits for family physician rounds: you can apply to UBC CPD here (same as conference application): ubccpd.ca/accreditation/application
Credits for specialist rounds:
Accreditation of rounds for specialists is actually a very simple registration with the Royal College, although the same rigorous accreditation standards apply.
- Go directly to the Royal College website and review their Self-Approval Toolkit for rounds (link below).
- Complete the Self-Approval Checklist & Form for Rounds (it’s just a 1-pg form) and send it to the email address they provide on the form. You will likely not receive acknowledgement from the Royal College, but understand that by formally registering you are confirming that your rounds adhere to the Royal College accreditation standards.
- Then, find the Royal College Rounds Accreditation Statement for rounds which you will see in the centre of the toolkit page. Then put the accreditation statement on the certificates your give to the participants, signed by the Chair.
There is no charge for specialist rounds registration this way, and there is no expiration until the Chair changes so you must make a note of this so that there is no lapse in your accreditation over the years.
