GPs reject CPD overhaul

podcast The Tea Room

Why fix what’s not broken?


Continuing professional development is getting a facelift, with the beginning of ‘CPD homes’ and a shift from a points-per-triennium system to an hours-per-year one.

AHPRA and the national boards are the architects behind the new framework, which is set to take effect in January 2023.

But a lot of GPs aren’t happy about the overhaul with many saying it will add time and effort to the CPD process – with little evidence of improvement.

This episode we are joined by Dr Umair Masood, Victorian GP and vice president of the grassroots advocacy organisation the Australian Society of General Practice.
