The College has released its first educational video to provide an overview of the Physician Practice Enhancement Program (PPEP). The video was developed and distributed to all community-based pediatric specialists in August to introduce them to the program.
Since first announcing the expansion of PPEP back in May, program staff has been in consultation with experienced pediatricians, as well as leveraging the work of fellow health regulatory bodies, to develop and refine BC’s pediatric assessment standards.
The expansion of the PPEP to include pediatric specialists is a testament to its success so far, and aligns with a 2014 Board decision to include more specialists, similar to that of other colleges across Canada.
