The Australian Medical Board’s proposals for revalidation
Many of you will be aware of the Medical Board’s review of validation for doctors. Briefly, they encompass enhancement of CPD such as a greater emphasis on peer review, 360 degree feedback and practice visits, all of which may be mandatory. As AMA psychiatrists we would accept some enhancement of CPD within the College’s existing programme. We are more concerned about the possible profiling of doctors at risk based on criteria for which the evidence is unclear.
