Prescribing Safely Canada (en anglais seulement)

Earn Mainpro+® credits and assess your prescribing skills with Prescribing Safely Canada

The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) is working with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada to pilot Prescribing Safely Canada—a new online tool to help Canadian physicians assess and enhance their prescribing skills.

Prescribing Safely Canada is based on a program developed by the British Pharmacological Society. The pilot is customized for physicians specializing in family medicine, pediatrics, and internal medicine/general surgery.

The assessment consists of 30 case-based questions that focus on a full range of prescribing competencies. The assessment evaluates various knowledge areas including prescribing, medication review, communication, calculation skills, drug monitoring, and adverse drug reactions.

The pilot is available in English only and is available free of charge.

This online assessment is certified by the CFPC for up to two Mainpro+ credits. Family physicians are encouraged to sign up and complete the assessment before the deadline of April 30, 2018.

Through the involvement of Dr. Allan Grill, Physician Adviser with the CFPC’s Professional Development and Practice Support Division, the College participated in the design and review of the case-based questions in the family medicine portion of the assessment.
