Physician Achievement Review (PAR) Program

Quality improvement both in individual practice and province-wide

College Council discontinues PAR program

New competence program reflects extensive physician input

Based on feedback from CPSA members, College Council has decided to discontinue PAR as a general screening tool. This decision allows the College to focus on developing a new approach to physician quality and introduce phase 1 of the new Continuing Competence program.

Building on what we heard from over 2000 physicians in focus groups, surveys and face-to-face conversations, the College is designing a new competence model that will include multi-source feedback as well as variety of tools and resources to help you improve your practice. The new approach will be implemented in 2017 and will provide relevant and timely information that will benefit physicians, and ultimately, their patients.

More details will be forthcoming in the coming weeks in The Messenger, email bulletins and postings on this website.

All physicians currently engaged in the PAR program are expected to complete the process.

Contact with questions.
