00:01 Intro and welcome. The information presented today about defined scope certificates is part of the College’s preliminary consultation with the profession – no decisions have been made; we are floating an idea and welcoming feedback and reactions from the profession.
00:50 Understanding Changing Scope of Practice: What it is. What it is not.
1:15 Game Show Segment: Check out 3 practical examples of changing circumstances in a physican’s practice. In each scenario we ask: Does this physician have the appropriate education and experience to do the following? Test yourself.
3:06 Practice evolves over time.
3:50 The Proposal: Defined Scope – What it is: explicitly identifying specialty (and subspecialty?).
4:25 Goals of Defined Scope Certificates: to provide more clarity to the profession, hospitals and the public about College expectations of ‘Education and Experience’.
5:48 Should the registration change only apply to new registrants?
6:09 Let’s illustrate with an example. We show you that the proposed change will not impose any new restrictions on a physician’s practice.
7:35 Next steps in the decision-making process (2012).
8:48 What we’ve heard from our members so far (consultation feedback).
9:47 Your feedback: Visit our website and tell us if you think our proposed mechanisms will achieve our goal of providing clarity.
