CMPA Good Practices Guide

CMPA Good Practices Guide

Safe Care— reducing medical-legal risk
The CMPA Good Practices Guide (GPG) is a comprehensive Canadian website that supports learning about safe medical care and medical-legal risk reduction.

Mapped to CanMEDS, the GPG includes over one hundred digital resources, such as cases studies, videos and quizzes that support learning. All of these teaching tools can easily be filtered using the faculty resources index.

Relevant throughout the continuum of a physician’s career, the resources found in the guide are intended for medical students, residents, faculty and all practising physicians.
