It is hoped that physicians will welcome this program as an opportunity to

enhance their practice. In all walks of life there is need for review and assessment

of performance in order to offer the best quality of service or care. The PEP

experience allows the physician to receive feedback from their patients and peers.

Positive feedback is reassuring and affirming; trouble spots pointed out provide

incentive to improve one’s facilities and to develop skills through participating in

various educational opportunities.

British Columbia summarized their experience this way -

‘It works because the

purpose is educational and not disciplinary. The conditions of learning are more

conducive in this environment - the assessors are not inspectors, but physicians

who were in practice the day before the assessment and will probably be in practice

the day after the assessment.’
