CPD Categories and Activities

For the purposes of increasing diversity of activities for a broad CPD learning experience, the hours allocated for activities are maximum claimable hours (highlighted with an *) that can be used towards the CPD requirement. You may perform additional hours in these activities though only the maximum claimable hours will be used in the calculation of the CPD requirement.

The tables below lists approved activities and their maximum claimable* hour allocations. When entering CPD hours, for other approved activities that do not fit into the general activity titles listed below, you can select Other Reviewing performance activity not covered above’.

Category 2: Reviewing Performance - minimum of 5 hours

This involves reflective practice, which includes the professional development plan, peer review activities, patient and practice surveys, quality assurance, risk management and participation in RANZCO committees. This also includes cultural competency, medicolegal peer reviews and reporting activities. You must complete a minimum of 5 hours of Reviewing Performance. 25 hours must be achieved and this can include hours combined with Measuring Outcomes.
