New emergency response standard

We've developed a new emergency response standard on acute severe behavioural disturbance for the adult patient specifically for faculty fellows for 2019.
This standard will be the fifth emergency response activity available to participants of the ANZCA and FPM CPD program, and ensures all FPM fellows can fully undertake the CPD program relevant to their scope of practice.
Information regarding the inclusion of the ASBD emergency response standard:
  • ASBD emergency response courses/workshops with recognition of suitability may be claimed in their CPD portfolio from January 1, 2019. 
  • The triennial CPD requirement remains at two emergency response activities per triennium, for participants with the clinical practice type.
  • The change to the CPD Standard is an increase from four to five options in the Emergency response category.
  • The recognition of suitability process for all emergency response activities will remain the same.
