Welcome to the new online facility for recording our CPD.
Launching on July 6th
CPD is an essential part of being a professional practitioner and has been defined as “a range of learning activities through which professionals grow and develop throughout their careers to ensure that they retain their capacity to practise safely, effectively and legally within their evolving scope of practice” - (Health Professions Council).
We want journalling CPD to be an inspiring, engaging, and worthwhile aspect to our professional lives, and one which gives us the opportunity to reflect upon what we have discovered through our activities and how they have contributed to our professional development. Reviewing past and planning future CPD also allows us to take time to focus on our own development and shape what we want to do and learn in the future.
CPD does not have to be expensive or onerous – most of us are doing it all the time by reading, listening to podcasts, talking with colleagues, journalling on treatments given and received, and so on. Have a look at the examples below to give you some ideas.
The online facility has given the Society an opportunity to change how we review our CPD. Instead of some members being audited, now everyone will record their CPD on the new system and the Society will be able to check easily that everyone is fulfilling that essential responsibility of all Professional members. If you are having problems uploading your information, the admin team will be happy to help you - firstname.lastname@example.org
Please read the FAQs below, then log in to your CPD pages to start recording all the activities you have been doing. The new system is easy to use and you only have to complete 15 hours within your membership year.
Please remember the CPD facility launches on July 6th
