Self Assessment & CPD for your College
Many colleges require their members to self-assess their own CPD points. The number of claimable points/credits/hours varies depending on the college and also whether or not you are a speaker or a delegate. In general, speakers will be able to attract more CPD points than delegates. After each medical conference you will be provided with a Certificate of Attendance and the academic agenda for your CPD/CME records.
Royal Australian College of Physicians (RACP)
Based on our reading of the RACP's 2018 myCPD Framework, most sessions do attract one credit per hour (max 50 credits annually) under the Category 'Educational Development, Teaching & Research' for Speakers and one credit per hour (max 50 credits annually) under the Category 'Group Learning' for delegates.
College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand
Based on our reading of the College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand's 'Continuing Professional Development Manual', Intensivists will be able to allocate self-directed CPD points for our conferences. Academic content would fit into either Category 2A: Passive Group Learning at 1 point per hour or Category 2B: Active or Interactive Small Group Learning Activities at 2 points per hour depending on the session for delegates. Approved speakers would fall under the Category 4A: Teaching and Training for their presentation, which attracts 1 point per hour.
