Tools and resources for the MOC Program
Explore our quality improvement tools and guidelines in the Essential Guidance on Quality Improvement page for Section 3 credit:
- Post QI Reflective Reporting Tool; this reflective tool helps you describe the practice change and quality domains targeted, in addition to listing data indicators used to measure improvements.
- Annual Performance Review; Annual reviews provide physicians with an opportunity to reflect on past performance goals and establish plans for the coming year.
- Direct observation; Direct observation uses supervisors, colleagues or peers to observe a physician performing a regular professional activity to identify whether specific behaviours or competencies were demonstrated.
- Feedback on teaching; Consider using the Feedback on Teaching tool to summarise evaluations of your teaching completed by students, residents, physicians or health professionals to provide evidence related to the effectiveness and impact of your teaching. Reviewing these evaluations provides opportunities to identify areas for improvement within this dimension of professional practice.
- Practice assessment; Practice Self-Assessment provides an opportunity to evaluate aspects of your daily work and target quality improvement aims across a variety of CanMEDS Roles.
- Chart Audit and Feedback; Chart audit and feedback is an assessment strategy that uses data recorded in a chart or electronic health record to assess the performance of an individual, group or team against one or more measures of performance.
