  45. Accreditation Cases • These are actual cases/questions that have come across the desks of Royal College staff. • Remember the ground rules: • There are no trick questions • Do not read too much into the cases • Read silently • Mutual respect; no judgment

  46. Accreditation Case #1 An accredited CPD provider receives an application for Section 1 accreditation of the the National Consortium of Heart Failure Clinics (NCCHFC) annual meeting. The NCCHFC is composed of representatives from heart failure clinics across Canada. The website indicates that the NCCHFC is a not-for-profit organization, with a governance structure and a membership composed of representatives from heart failure clinics.

  47. Accreditation Case #1 Are there any barriers to accrediting this annual meeting?

  48. Accreditation Case #1 The NCCHFC is not considered a physician organization. This is because their membership is composed of heart failure centres, rather than individual health professionals. In order to seek accreditation for educational courses, the NCCHFC will need to approach another physician organization and enter into a co-development relationship to develop the program.

  49. What is a ‘physician organization’? A physician organization is defined as a not-for-profit group of health professionals with a formal governance structure, accountable to and serving, among others, its specialist physician members through continuing professional development, provision of health care, and/or research

  50. Accreditation Case #2 An accredited CPD provider has accredited a workshop to be presented in Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. Each city has a different moderator for the workshop. These moderators are required to attend a train-the-trainer in advance of the accredited workshop and are paid to attend. The commercial interest co-developing the program with you would like to pay directly for the expenses of the train-the-trainer sessions.
