What We Do
ManitobaCPD.com is a CPD portal web site with a strong social networking emphasis. It has been developed under the supervision of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Manitoba. It is a 'Made in Manitoba' solution that draws from local programming talent both inside the University of Manitoba and the private sector. It is wholly owned by the University of Manitoba.
The main goal of ManitobaCPD.com is to improve the delivery of CPD to health professionals in Manitoba be they rural, northern or urban. It is built on a social networking platform custom designed for the needs of health practitioners. It provides reusable generic CPD tools that are commonly required by any health care organization in the discharge of its day to day CPD delivery tasks so that these individual organizations do not have to endure the cumbersome and at times defeating task of producing these tools themselves. As such, ManitobaCPD.com does not produce content. It hosts content and supports the users that produce it in a secure yet flexible way.
This application is designed around the realization that every health practitioner is a both an educator and a learner. ManitobaCPD.com provides you with a solution that recognizes and supports this reality. You can use ManitobaCPD.com to find, manage and track your own learning activities while reaching out to others in areas that you excel at, all in one common interface.
We are *AGILE*
ManitobaCPD.com follows the AGILE approach to software development which emphasizes frequent, small evolutionary modifications to the web application. It follows the '80/20' rule. If the feature you are requesting is generic enough that it will benefit 80% of the users or teams then ManitobaCPD.com will likely put it into the web application's codebase, often in the same week. This means that your feature requests are taken seriously and will have a real chance of entering production quickly if they are good suggestions.
ManitobaCPD.com is eager to get all members of the Manitoba medical community involved and engaged in this project.
