Family physicians can use PLP data reports to reflect on their own practice, enhance their knowledge and stimulate a further review and identify potential changes in their practice to improve the quality of care. Physicians can earn both certified and non-certified Mainpro+ credits by receiving PLP reports and reflecting on their own practice.
It’s simple. All the Linking Learning forms are available on our Mainpro+ portal. Linking Learning to Assessment is categorized as certified Assessment activities, and Linking Learning to Practice can be found under certified Self-Learning activity. Describe the clinical question and area for self-reflection and fill out the online form. After some time has passed (typically 6-12 weeks) where you have assessed the impact of your decision, you can return to your holding area to complete the form. Click, submit and you’re done!
