#OTalk -23 April 2019 – Continuing Professional Development

Hello #OTalk, this evening we thought it would a good idea to have a general chat about all things Continued Professional Development. It has been a little while since we had a general chat on this topic, but here are a few links to previous chats we have had to help get our thoughts flowing….

#OTalk 10th April 2018 – How to record your CPD

#OTalk 17th October – CPD and service quality

#OTalk 11th July – CPD is more than HCPC audit. How to strategically manage your Continuing Professional Development.

#OTalk 29th March OT – Shifting CPD Focus

The following are some posters and articles that are of course always worth a mention

#COT2017 Clicking your way through continuing professional development? Poster 26

the above poster was also followed up with this article 
Attitudes to social media use as a platform for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) within occupational therapy

and of course  The use of Twitter for continuing professional development within occupational therapy  (Open Access).

As a predominantly UK based chat most of those who join us will be either currently or due to register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Whilst engaging in CPD is not all about audit it is wise to ensure that you utilise your CPD activity in a way that will support your profile if are are called for audit. Here is a link to the HCPC’s CPD resources https://www.hcpc-uk.org/cpd/

To aid us in answering your questions please fill in this quick form to help us keep track of the questions and  ensure that we don’t miss any of your questions during the chat My question about CPD for the general chat on 23rd April 2019.

We look forward to asking all your questions of the community and supporting another great chat.

#OTalk 9th April 2019 Community Ideas

This week we thought it would be a good idea to have a community idea chat.

This will give everyone an opportunity to have a think about future topics the community would like to discuss.

The themes will be flexible and open to change as the discussion progresses, but some things to think about in preparation:

Have you been wanting to host a chat, but not committed to a date yet?

Do you have any questions that are holding you back from hosting?

Would you like to co-host a chat with someone who shares a passion for a topic? maybe this could be just opportunity to link up, or we could could compile a list?

Have you attended a talk or CPD session and would like to suggest we approach someone to host a chat?

Have you read an article recently that would be a good starting point for a discussion?

What about other media that may of sparked an idea? Maybe a YouTube video or a podcast?

Any other suggestions?

We look forward to tweeting with all your wonderful ideas.

The #OTalk organising team.
