Who Is This Guide For?

The purpose of this guide is to provide the accreditation policies and procedures of the CSN for planning committees of CPD/CME programs seeking MOC Section 1 or 3 accreditation.

As an Accredited CPD Provider, designated by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC), the CSN develops, approves and delivers activities for CPD credits under Section 1 and Section 3 of the RCPSC Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program.

Working in collaboration with physician organizations, universities, industry partners, our members and other stakeholders, the CSN develops and accredits CPD activities based on the educational needs of nephrologists across the country. These activities will bring the latest developments on best practices in ophthalmology clinical practice and research.

National Standard for Support of Accredited CPD Activities

The intent of the National Standard for Support of Commercial Support of Accredited CPD Activities (the Standard) is to safeguard the integrity of accredited CPD activities from the influence of sponsoring organizations that could lead to bias. The Standard applies to all situations where financial and in-kind support is accepted to contribute to the development, delivery and/or evaluation of accredited CPD activities. Adherence to the Standard is required for the approval of all accredited CPD activities.

Which activities may be accredited by the CSN?

  • Educational activities developed by a physician organization.

  • Educational activities co-developed with a non-physician and/or physician organization and the CSN
