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.
