Resources to Plan Your Learning
Activities planned to address specific needs, enhance awareness of new evidence potentially relevant to practice or enhance the quality of multiple systems are part of this section. Here are some useful resources to plan your learning:
Centre for Learning in Practice
“The Centre for Learning in Practice (CLIP) is a unit within the Office of Professional Affairs (OPA) of the Royal College that is dedicated to studying, promoting and participating in scholarly discussion about the theory, strategies and interventions that enhance physician learning both as individuals or members of a health care team.”
MAINPORT ePortfolio is a continuing professional development (CPD) planning tool that allows physicians to input their learning goals, create comprehensive plans to achieve each goal and track their progress during the year.
The Royal College includes useful information on CPD activities you can record for MOC.
For Family Practitioners, the CFPC offers:
- Self-Learning program
- CFP Mainpro+ Articles
- Other CPD Programs
- TRIP Database. Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.
The self-directed COMPASS aims to support your self-directed learning (SDL) process. We encourage you to use the self-directed learning COMPASS often. It includes:
- Instructions about how to develop a Personal Learning Plan.
- A list of resources on self-directed learning such as the accredited Self-Learning activities from the RCPSC and CFPC.
- Resource assessment.
- Self-directed COMPASS assessment.
Programs Designed by Others
Programs designed by others are the most predominant type of CPD/CPD activity. These very popular activities are developed by planning committees based on their understanding of what you need to know or be able to do.
Office of CPD Programs and CPD programs created by uOttawa partners are listed in the CPD Event Calendar.
