SurgicalPerformance users can claim 1 PRA point for every 12 cases entered into SurgicalPerfomance. Here we explain how it is done.
Traditionally and prior to the most recent CPD changes, SurgicalPerformance users were able to claim 1 PRA point for every 12 cases entered into SurgicalPerformance.
The new CPD system transitions from points to hours. For this actual triennium (finishing on 30 June 2022), a total of 150 hours are required, of which 38 hours are required in each domain: Educational activities, Outcome Measurement and Performance Review. The remainder of the 36 hours can be in any domain (including in Outcome Measurement).
With this new CPD system, SurgicalPerformance users can claim points in the category “Outcome Measurement (OM)”.
How you do this:
- Login to your SurgicalPerformance account
- You will automatically be directed to the Dashboard page
- On this page scroll down until you can see the box “PRA points”. Click on it. A larger window will open. You can adjust the “From – To” date period, which should be your CPD period (for example: 1July 2019 – 30 June 2022). SurgicalPerformance will automatically suggest how many CPD hours you earned (assuming you will be granted 1 hour for every 12 cases entered).
- If you did PROMS also, you would be claiming even more hours
- Click on your user ID (right hand top corner of the screen). A window will open and select certificate. Your certificate will appear, which you can print, scan, and submit.
- Upload your documents in “My CPD” through the RANZCOG web-portal as usual.
From 1 July 2022 onwards, Fellows of RANZCOG will need to submit their claims for CPD hours every 12 months.
A total of 50 hours will be required and at least 5 of those need to be in the Outcome Measurement (OM) category, for which SurgicalPerformance is ideal. An additional 25 hours can also be claimed for Outcome Measurement by using SurgicalPerformance. In summary, a total of 30 hours can be claimed per every 12-months CPD period by using SurgicalPerformance.
