The Physician Practice Enhancement Program (PPEP) has redesigned the physician assessment report to an enhanced Performance Review and Action Plan, intended to provide physicians assessed through PPEP with more comprehensive feedback. The report includes recommendations from a PPEP medical advisor, tools for self-reflections and self-directed improvement, and an action plan template that can aid in implementing changes to practice. The goals are to encourage physicians to invest in a cycle of improvement and increase ease of use by providing the information in one complete document.
The new Performance Review and Action Plan reports are now being distributed via password-protected USB keys to ensure confidentiality. The electronic format also includes links to learning tools that are accessible online and PDF fillable forms that can be reused. Family physicians will also receive a separate BC Guidelines USB with additional resources to help them stay current with clinical practice guidelines. The program recognizes the demands that are placed on physicians’ time, and aims to provide tools that facilitate more efficient self-learning.
