As physicians we strive to optimize patient care. The direct peer feedback provides an opportunity for physicians to reflect and adjust their practice if needed and to discuss opportunities for self-care. The aim of the peer reviewer is to engage with colleagues in a conversation to generate insight that strengthens patient care and supports physician wellness.

– Dr. Natasha Deshwal

Guidance on Risk and Supportive Factors in Medical Practice

It is known that a variety of factors may influence the quality of a physician’s practice. Some factors pose a risk, while others are supportive of practice quality over time. It is important that physicians be alert to factors at play in their practice and take steps to reduce risks and optimize supports.

Self-Reflection and Physician Practice Improvement Exercise

A commitment to practice improvement through continuing professional development (CPD) is a necessary element of professional self-regulation. Medical educators and regulators recently collaborated to design a new framework to promote Physician Practice Improvement (PPI).
