Providing optimal care to your patients is important to you, and the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) is creating a continuing professional development (CPD) resource to help you do just that. The CFPC Professional Learning Plan (PLP) tool will help members like you set a plan to achieve your practice and learning goals with the vision of continually improving patient care.

We crafted a step-by-step PLP tool that addresses key points for CPD:
  • Seeing opportunities for practice improvement can be difficult on busy days—the PLP tool will help you find them
  • Improving patient care is everyone’s goal—we’ve enlisted physicians and other subject matter experts to help us create the PLP tool to optimize your learning and move you toward improvement
  • Allowing you to go at your own pace is what the PLP tool does—it encourages you to give yourself time to reflect on your practice data and implement your own ideas
  • Planning your own CPD is time-consuming and may not result in the most impactful ideas—our tool works for all members at all stages, in all types of family medicine practice

Why complete a PLP?

The PLP tool can help you identify your learning gaps and opportunities for practice improvement by providing access to relevant CPD activities to support you in achieving your goals. We will provide strategies to help you create and follow through with your plan, including advice for enlisting a peer or colleague to assist your commitment to improving yourself, your practice, and your patient care strategies.

Benefits of completing a PLP

By completing a PLP activity you can earn up to 20 certified Mainpro+® credits in the Assessment activity category. At the end of each activity, you’ll have a printable customized summary of your responses and input, as well as a printable certificate as a reminder of your CPD achievement. When you complete the PLP activity, you can begin another activity to earn more credits.
