RACGP and ACRRM requirements

Continuing Professional Development aims to assist GPs to maintain and improve the quality of care they provide to patients and promote care to the community of the highest possible standards.  SWSPHN assists to organise and implement educational activities to support General Practice by providing opportunities across the SWS region according to Needs Assessment conducted in collaboration with the GPs.  SWSPHN works collaboratively with the SWSLHD, WSU and other key education providers.

SWSPHN is a CPD education provider under the RACGP CPD Program.


RACGP Requirements:

CPD Program requirements for the 2020-2022 triennium. 



ACRRM Requirements:

The Medical Board of Australia (MBA) has strengthened professional development requirements under its Professional Performance Framework.  The ACRRM PDP is changing to support members and Fellows to meet new regulatory requirements.

There are three professional development categories - Educational activities, Performance review and Outcome measurement.

Activities will be measured in hours rather than points.  You will need to achieve 150 hours per triennium (50 hours per year) made up of the following:

• 25% from educational activities

• 25% from performance review

• 25% from outcome measurement

• Remaining 25% can be any of the above

A life support course is required once every triennium (Advanced Life Support for ACRRM Fellows and Basic Life Support for non-Fellows.) This will also count towards the Educational activities category.
