Connect with your referrers by offering CPD accredited hours on your next event.
Effective 1 Jan 2023, the Medical Board of Australia, ANZ specialty colleges and regulators have changed the CPD Program requirements. It has moved from a point system to an hourly system and rather than having a triennium to complete requirements, Australian doctors now have 12 months to attain 50hrs. This means, they will need to complete higher learning hours in shorter time frames.
What you need to do to become a CPD provider?
What’s involved? Firstly, you need to nominate a staff member to become a member with a CPD home eg RACGP, and complete a course that costs upwards of $1,100 per person per year. The incumbent must also complete a simulated program prior to being approved by the CPD home before they are permitted to deliver an accredited event.
Say you’ve completed the course, you also need to coordinate the program and market the event.
We’re talking flyers, brochures, email campaigns, event registration, event coordination and catering to name a few tasks that need to be done. At Medimark, we work with your team and do it all for you. Simply put, you can focus on caring for your patients while we manage everything behind the scenes to deliver an exceptional event that allows you to connect with their referral network.
If your team member leaves, their qualification leaves with them. It's a risk that relies on staff retention.
Events you can run to engage referrers
The sky is the limit with what you can do, here are a few options. We can also design the event to be interactive, with attendees submitting their answers in a poll similar to a trivia night.

> Webinars > Workshops > Conference > Open Days
