Practice Gap and Evidence of Need
This year our review committee will be looking for stronger information regarding the application sections; Practice Gap and Evidence of Need.
In the area of "Practice Gap," applicants need to define challenging areas of practice, (ie knowledge or behavioral gaps in professional practice) and explain how the CPD course will address this gap. The application needs to clearly define the practice gaps that will be specifically addressed and explain how the course intends to increase the effectiveness of learners and further their continuing professional development as professional homeopaths.
Then, applicants need to provide EVIDENCE of this identified Practice Gap (Evidence of Need). This should be more than a written explanation. Applicants should indicate the specific source from which this educational need was determined (summaries of needs assessments, surveys, reports, patient audits; etc),
and attach or embed copies of this evidence or links to research.
For renewal applications,
the application form includes sections specifically for renewals where the applicant should discuss the
Practice Gap and Evidence of Need. Applicants need to demonstrate that the course content remains relevant to the needs of the Professional Homeopath.
How do you know
this course content
to be relevant in building the skills of the professional homeopath?
What evidence do you have to support this?
