ANSWERS

Q. Is the conference accredited for CME points?
A. Rotorua GP CME 2018 Meeting will apply to The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) for 26 Hours CME for General Practice Educational Programme Stage 2 (GPEP2) and Maintenance of Professional Standards (MOPS) purposes. 

Workshops Preliminary Day is applying for 8 hours of CME

ACLS Level 7 = 12 CME credits                                  ACLS Level 5 = 5 CME Credits


Q. Do I need a Certificate of Attendance for CME points?
A. Yes, one will be available in the back of the Conference Proceedings, available at the meeting.

Q. Do I send my Certificate of Attendance to Conference Matters to earn CME points?
A. No, keep the Attendance Certificate for your records, and apply for your MOPS or AVE CME points through your normal quarterly reporting to the RNZCGP. You may be asked for a copy of your Attendance Certificate by the RNZCGP or New Zealand Medical Council, so file in an appropriate place.

While the conference may be  approved for up to a maximum of 29 hours GPs attending can only claim for the conference sessions they attend.  Delegates will need to complete the self-recording form (available in the proceedings booklet).  This form can be kept as the Certificate of Attendance, so practitioners participating in GPEP 2 or MOPs have the necessary documentation for submission to the RNZCGP when this is requested.
