  2. Competency-based;

  3. Informed decision making as a committee through the input and consultation from relevant stakeholders such as professional bodies, accreditors, CPD providers, and make final judgements based on the committee members decisions;

  4. Consensus building to develop processes.

CHEP+ operates as an independent body with funding sourced from both the public and private sectors. CPD funding should align with the committee’s purposes for CPD – improving quality of care for patients. 


All content is developed independently to ensure the integrity of the programs to the best practices outlined in the C-CHANGE Guidelines.
