Throughout this section, "HPA" refers to the Health Professions Act. The HPA can be accessed from the Alberta King's Printer website.
Each year, a semi-randomized percentage of CAP regulated members are selected to have their prior year's CCP plan audited. A CCP plan may be selected for an audit as a result of:
The CCP audit process assesses the following:
A notification email will be sent to everyone who was selected for the audit. This includes people who are no longer registered but who were registered during the CCP year under audit.
Below is an example of what members will see when they have an open audit form on their dashboard in the MyCAP Login:
The audit form will not be viewable until the review process is completed. Results of the audit will be communicated to members in due course and members need not do anything audit-related until that time.
At the outcome of the audit process, audited members receive feedback on their CCP submission, including:
If you are required to modify and resubmit: An Audit form may require modification and resubmission and the open audit form is available on the dashboard of the MyCAP Login:
To access reviewer comments, modify the Audit form, and resubmit, click on "Update". From there, you will be able to see the comments from the review at the top of each competence area under the heading "Reviewer Feedback":
If your CCP plan is approved: An Audit form may be approved but contain feedback for consideration for future learning plans. As soon as the Audit form is approved, the Audit form will be generated into a PDF. The PDF'd Audit form is available in the "My documents" tab of the MyCAP Login:
Reviewer comments are found throughout the PDF under each competence area under the heading "Reviewer Feedback":
Members can appeal the results of their audit to a new panel of the CCP committee who must come to a consensus on their review and evaluation decision. The two new professional reviewers can either:
1) uphold the decision of the original review, or
2) update the decision of the original review.
Decisions of the two new professional reviewers are subject to further appeal to the Registrar and/or a panel of CAP Council. A written request for an appeal must be received by the CAP office within 30 days of the notification to the member of their CCP audit results. Member appeals will be scheduled within 30 days of receipt of the appeal request. An administrative charge will be applied to all appeal requests in accordance with the CAP fee schedule.
