New CPD app in 2024
27 November 2023
You asked; we listened! We’re developing a new CPD app due to launch in the first half of 2024.
We’re always looking for ways to make your continuing professional development (CPD) experience easier and simpler. This co-developed mobile app will complement your online CPD portfolio, and enhance the way you record, monitor, and provide evidence for your completed CPD activities.
Want to get involved?
Your input will be vital to ensuring the new CPD app meets your needs. If you want to get involved with design, validation, and testing the CPD app in the coming weeks, please email us.
We may also invite you to participate in workshops to provide feedback on your experience with the CPD portfolio and CPD app before wider release.
What support is available for me in the meantime?
Did you know you can already access your CPD portfolio on your phone? And save it as a mobile responsive app for easy access?
For more tips on navigating your online CPD portfolio for the new annual CPD program check out our support video and FAQs page. And, as always, our dedicated CPD team is also on hand to help.
Additional CPD review project initiatives
The launch of a CPD mobile app is part of this broader initiative to improve the college’s ANZCA and FPM CPD program and dedicated to making it easier and simpler for fellows and other CPD participants. There are 13 new CPD activities coming in 2024, full details here.
The CPD review project group aimed to formally evaluate the 2014 triennial CPD Program and implement the new requirements of the Medical Board of Australia (MBA) revised registration standard (effective 1 January 2023) and the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) updated recertification documents (effective 1 July 2022).
Phase two in 2023 has focused on further updating the CPD program to better meet fellows and other CPD participants’ needs. Initiatives include:
- Reviewing the emergency response category criteria and developing criteria for the practice evaluation and knowledge & skills categories.
- Considering recognition processes for externally produced education resources and other specialist medical college CPD programs.
- Developing new CPD activities and reviewing existing CPD activities for currency.
- Establishing two reference groups to ensure the CPD program meets fellows and other CPD participants’ diverse needs.
