Remote PPEP assessments

Physician Practice Enhancement Program update


The Physician Practice Enhancement Program (PPEP) suspended all assessments following the provincial health officer’s declaration of a public health emergency in March. With the province now entering phase 3 of its reopening plan, PPEP will subsequently re-engage physicians to participate in the program. 

To adhere to physical distancing requirements, the program will pivot to remote assessments for completing the various components of the program: peer practice assessment (review of the EMR), and the physician feedback interview. Several safeguards have been established to ensure that confidential patient information is maintained and upheld throughout the process. 

Questions can be directed to the program at peerassessment@cpsbc.ca.
