What is this engagement about?
The Ministry of Health invites general practitioners (GPs) and specialists to provide input and advice about specific drugs and indications under review.
The Ministry of Health gathers evidence-informed input from clinicians about specific drugs and indications under review.
This input is collected as a short clinical practice reviewer (CPR) report that captures a clinician’s confidential input and advice about a specific drug and indication, based on their clinical practice experience and drug- or indication-specific expertise.
This is an ongoing engagement inviting input from B.C.-based general practitioners (GPs) and specialists as new drugs are reviewed regularly under the drug review process.
How can my contribution make a difference?
CPR reports inform PharmaCare drug coverage decisions about whether or not to list a drug on the provincial formulary.
This input consists of preparing a short three to five page clinical practice reviewer report that answers specific questions and captures a clinician’s confidential input and advice about a drug and indication, based on clinical practice experience and drug- and indication-specific expertise.
Clinicians who prepare a clinical practice reviewer report are compensated for their time. They may also claim professional development/continuing medical education (CPD/CME) credits from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons’ Maintenance of Certification Program (MOC Program) or The College of Family Physicians of Canada Maintenance of Proficiency (MAINPRO®) program. See the PharmaCare clinical practice reviewer reports webpage for more details about claiming CPD/CME credits.
