PM102  Professional Practice Evaluation and the Joint Commission: What You Need to Know to Comply

Sunday, October 13
4:30–5:30 PM

Practice-Based Learning and Improvement System Based Practice

The Joint Commission (JC) requires health care organizations to implement a system for formal detailed evaluation of the competence and practice performance of pathologists and other physicians. The requirements for Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation (OPPE) and Focused Professional Practice Evaluation (FPPE) involve the need to evaluate the performance of pathology practitioners when renewal of practice privileges is necessary or when new privileges are granted. This course will review these JC requirements and demonstrate how to implement a program for OPPE and FPPE in a department or institution. Presenters will describe a new CAP resource to assist in implementing such a program.

You will learn to:
