Title Meaningful Learning, Greater Choice, and Easier Reporting. A Proposal to Meet Physician Needs
Background/Purpose The Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Framework supports physicians in keeping up with advances in clinical practice. The science of CPD has evolved to a personalized, data driven, team-based, hands-on, innovative, and reflective lifelong learning endeavor. This project sought to revise the MOC Framework to be socially responsible, informed by scientific evidence, and designed to support meaningful improvements in practice and patient outcomes.
Methods The project was approached in multiple steps: 1) an assessment from an extensive literature review, comparison of worldwide programs, and evolving requirements of provincial colleges was conducted; 2) focus groups including diverse Fellows and patient partner groups aiming to understand CPD needs, desires and barriers, and what constitutes meaningful learning; and 3) updating the Framework to a new draft, with a second stage of focus groups to gather feedback on these proposed changes.
Results Over 40 codesign sessions were completed seeking feedback with 70+ Fellows from all practice settings and career stages. Based on the data, we propose that the refreshed MOC Framework maintain three sections, each with enhanced learning modalities. Section 3 deemed the most relevant, will be divided into three subgroups: personal assessment, assessment of others, and improvement initiatives. Additionally, workplace, team, and networking enhanced learning would be embedded to reflect varied practices.
Discussion As best practice, the MOC Framework should be co-designed with physician and patient partners and regularly evolve, grounded in CPD science and research, for effective lifelong learning and relevant practice changes centered on patient outcomes.
