The Framework Supporting MOC Program
The MOC program is built on a framework of learning activities that reflects three types of continuing professional development activities.
- Group learning activities designed to meet defined educational criteria and ethical standards. All conferences held in Canada must be reviewed and approved by a Royal College accredited provider. (Section I)
- Self-learning activities planned and developed individually or in collaboration with others to address a question, issue or need relevant to practice.
- Practice assessment activities focused on assessing one's current knowledge or performance in order to identify areas of potential improvement.
