Day of review

Please note:

While you may be able to schedule some patients on the day of your review, we request that you are able to flex your schedule to accommodate the review. An approximate review schedule is outlined below.

 Your schedule

1. Assessor meet & greet (approx. 45-60 min)

The assessor will meet you at your workplace. You will then have the opportunity to give them a brief introduction to the nature of your practice and an orientation to your charts. The assessor will also review with you the expected schedule for the day.

Please ensure that there is a quiet location where the assessor can review your charts and that the assessor has a way to get in touch with you should they need to.

2. Chart review (approx. 4-6 hours depending on charts – possible to see patients during this time)

The assessor will review at least 10 charts of clients to whom you have provided care in the preceding three months. Please note that three charts must include prescribing-related activities. The assessor will attempt to ensure that the charts are as representative of your practice as possible.

The charts will be reviewed based on the indicators of expected performance as set out in the Applying the Competencies Required for Nurse Practitioners in B.C.

3. Discussion about review findings (approx. 1 hour)

The assessor will meet with you to go over the chart review findings and together you will identify potential strategies for professional development.

Please make sure to budget time for this process, as it’s a key part of the review. During the discussion, you and your assessor will go over the chart review findings and together you will identify potential strategies for professional development.

4. Access to your review data and feedback letter from CRNBC
You will be able to access the chart review information documented by your assessor immediately after your review, via the NPQA online system. You will also receive a letter with CRNBC’s feedback on your review approximately 6-8 weeks after your review date. If significant areas of improvement were identified by the assessor during your post-review discussion, the letter will outline CRNBC’s recommendations for professional development.
5. Post-visit questionnaire
We value and appreciate any feedback you may wish to give us. After your review, you will receive an email asking you to complete an evaluation form. All responses are confidential and anonymous to staff.
