Practice Enhancement and CPD Resources

MPAR focuses on practice improvement and professional development. The program encourages physicians to consider their MPAR review results when choosing professional development and continuing medical education activities.

Feedback from physicians who have completed similar reviews indicates that a significant majority feel their report provided useful information and many made, or were planning to make, practice changes in response to the report findings.

This section provides information and links to a variety of sources for practice improvement and continuing professional development.

The College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada agree that peer assessment programs such as MPAR are an important aspect of continuing professional development. Family physicians may earn MAINPRO-C credits from the CFPC, while surgical and medical specialists are eligible for credits in the Maintenance of Certification Program of the RCPSC.
