What is the difference between a CPD-Accredited Activity and a CPD Activity in 2020-2022?

CPD-Accredited Activity (formerly known as Category 1)
– offers deep learning that extends knowledge to affect change and/or learning that introduces a new knowledge or skill. These activities are at least 4hrs in duration, 2/3 interactive and provide appropriate levels of facilitation to achieve the proposed learning outcomes.

The design of the activity must include assessment of achieved learning outcomes and predisposing/reinforcing activities. All Provider-led CPD-Accredited activities are reviewed by RACGP prior to allocating 40 CPD points to participants.

Clinical Labs offers CPD-Accredited Activities through our Skin Excision Evaluation Program and our Diabetes Clinical Evaluation Program. 

CPD Activity (formerly known as Category 2) - offers reinforcement or updating of existing knowledge or skill. These Provider-led activities are eligible for 2 points per hour up to a maximum of 30 CPD points per activity.

Clinical Labs offers two options for Self-Directed CPD Activities with our Educational Modules and Clinical Articles.
