Description

Following the release of the updated policy for credentialing and scope of clinical practice, you're invited to our forum to:

  • hear the details of the new policy, including updated obligations for health services, clinical leaders and clinicians
  • share examples of cooperative approaches to credentialing
  • hear the national perspective on credentialing practice.

 

Who should attend?

Directors of Medical Services/Chief Medical Officers

If you cannot attend, please send a delegate. This is an important event to help you ensure the medical practitioners you appoint and retain are qualified, fit and operating within the scope of clinical practice.

 

What are the major changes to the policy?

Updates to the policy aim to:

  • clarify requirements for annual credential and medical indemnity insurance checks
  • expand the appeals process
  • define the duration of temporary credentialing
  • shorten the time period for formal recredentialing, from five years to three.
