In May 2003, the Faculty of Pain Medicine Board resolved that participation in a continuing professional development (CPD) program become mandatory for all Fellows of the Faculty effective from 2004.

The Faculty’s commitment to continuing professional development is shown by the participation of Fellows in its various programs. Fellows can complete the CPD program of either their primary specialty college and/or the ANZCA/FPM CPD Program.

The ANZCA/FPM Continuing Professional Development Program has been devised to promote and implement proven and accepted educational standards, strategies and tools to assist Fellows to plan and participate in CPD activities that meet their learning needs, to improve their practice.

The ANZCA/FPM CPD Program is available here.
