CPD TIPS

Dr. F. Gigi Osler, Winnipeg, MB
Chair, CPD Committee

If my experience is like many of yours, obtaining Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credits in Section 3: Assessment, is very challenging. The emphasis on assessment underlines its importance to provide data and feedback in order to identify our knowledge or performance needs and to develop future learning opportunities. Meaningful and constructive feedback is essential in assessment and for improving our skills.

Here is an easy, no-cost way to earn Section 3: Assessment credits (and even Section 2: Self-learning credits if you are really motivated!). Performance assessment activities can occur in a simulated or actual practice environment. It requires a colleague but both of you will be able to claim MOC credits:

• Ask a trusted colleague to assess your performance, either your technical or non-technical skills, during a simulated or actual surgical procedure. You can have them either assist you during the procedure or simply observe your performance.

• Immediately after the procedure, consider what worked well for you, what you would like to continue doing, and what you would like to improve on during future surgeries.

• Then review and discuss how you think you performed with your colleague. Review and discuss their feedback on your performance.

• Re-evaluate your self-assessment and compare to their feedback. Did you both agree that certain elements of your performance could be improved? If so, this is the perfect time to decide on a plan of action for further improvement, such as pursuing a Personal Learning Project (PLP), which earns your further credits in Section 2: Self-learning. *add link to PLP

• To assist you in this assessment activity, the CPD Committee has developed these downloadable and fillable forms that can be used to assess both your technical and non-technical skills. *add link to Direct Observation forms

• If you were assessed, you can claim “Section 3: Direct Observation” which earns you 3 credits/hour of time spent reflecting on your performance, receiving feedback and revising your self-assessment.

• As the “assessor”, your colleague can claim 15 “Section 2: Peer Review” credits for the year (regardless of how many times during the year they assess you or other colleagues).

Stay warm, stay healthy, and I look forward to seeing you in Quebec City on June 16-19, 2018 for our 72nd Annual Meeting!

Warm regards,
Gigi Osler
