The RACGP understands that it is important to recognise education that GPs see as personally valuable to their education – GPs can self-direct activities that the QI&CPD Program have not accredited. This provides GPs with increased flexibility and choice, and acknowledges the value of a diverse range of educational activities to the GP on an individual basis. The RACGP supports all GPs in achieving their personal needs.

Participation in unaccredited activities is entirely optional and, if chosen, GPs can record their attendance, via the online system. GPs can record an unlimited number of Category 2 unaccredited activities, however, QI&CPD points are capped at 20 per triennium.
