Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Through our continuing professional development program, we facilitate and promote networking, education and inter-professional learning opportunities for primary healthcare clinicians, based on locally identified needs that support improvements in the quality of patient care.
We work collaboratively with key education providers, peak bodies and primary healthcare professionals to develop and or coordinate events across the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury, Lithgow and Penrith. This includes profession-specific and or multidisciplinary programs as required.
Please refer to our events calendar for the latest educational offerings.
NBMPHN is an accredited provider of the Royal Australian College of General Practice (RACGP) Quality Improvement and Continuing Professional Development Program.
We also value our working relationships with the Australian Association of Practice Management (AAPM) and a number of peak primary health care bodies, organisations and associations.

We are in the 2017-2019 Triennium, with an increased focus on reflective learning and continued professional development, including the introduction of the new PLAN QI activity.
The minimum requirements for this Triennium - as set out on pages 3&4 of the RACGP 2017-2019 Quality Improvement and Continuing Professional Development (QI&CPD) Program handbook - are as follows:
A minimum of 130 QI&CPD points is required for the triennium, which must include:
- completion of one PLAN QI activity
- completion of one Category 1 activity
- completion of a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course
Further information about the PLAN QI activity - including resources, timelines and FAQs - can be found on the RACGP website, or by calling the RACGP NSW & ACT office on (02) 9886 4700.
We encourage other organisations involved in education to work with us in sharing and or developing an event information which can further support our primary health care professionals.
You can submit a request for NBMPHN to communicate details of your health-related event to our primary health care network (please note, NBMPHN cannot guarantee to promote all events submitted).
Alternatively, if you would like to work with us to develop an event, please submit an event development application.
We also welcome sponsorship of events aligned to our organisation's ethical position.
If you are interested in supporting one of our events, please call the CPD team on 4708 8100 or contact us online.
