Why did the ACCME eliminate Criterion 4, concerning learners’ scope of practice, from the Accreditation Criteria?

Published Date:

Criterion 4 was eliminated in February 2014 as part of the changes to simplify the accreditation requirements and process because it was redundant to Criterion 2, which requires providers to design activities based on educational needs that underlie professional practice gaps. If education reflects professional practice gaps it will, in turn, have to match the scope of practice.
