  • What is CPD?

    CPD is a systematic, ongoing structured process of maintaining, developing and enhancing skills, knowledge and competence both professionally and personally in order to improve performance at work. (CSP, 2003)

  • What is CPD?a range of learning activities through which professionals maintain and develop throughout their career to ensure they retain their capacity to practise safely, effectively and legally within their evolving scope of practise. (HPC CPD definition, 2004)

  • Why do we need to do CPD?

    All practising professionals want to develop their careers and strive for excellence. Quality, accountability and effective practice demand that you as a professional demonstrate that you are keeping abreast of new knowledge, techniques and developments related to your practice.

  • Factors affecting the CPD Agenda:Professional: Role development, specialisation, autonomy, self-regulation, Rule 1/Code 1 of Code of Conduct, Continued HPC registration, standards of practice, accreditation of clinical educators schemeOrganisational: Service delivery demands, role redesign/skill mix, competency frameworks, appraisalPolitical: Health Act 1999, Quality in the NHS, Clinical Governance, The NHS Plan, Agenda for Change and the Knowledge and Skills FrameworkRelated areas: EBP, Audit, Clinical effectiveness, outcome measures, NSFs, national competence frameworks

  • Who do we do it for? CSP RequirementsCPD is obligatory through the CSP Rules of Professional Conduct and Code of conduct. Rule 1 and Code 1 state that members should maintain and develop their ability to work safely and competently within their scope of practise. The CSP expects the establishment and maintenance of a portfolio of learning.

  • Who do we do it for? HPC RequirementsThe HPC CPD standards took effect from 1 July 2006.First audit of profiles is to take place in 2008 (Dont worry its for feet people!). Physiotherapists audited prior to renewing their registration in April 2010 Expected to comply with the standards from their introduction.

  • HPC StandardsMaintain a continuous, up-to-date and accurate record of CPD activityDemonstrate CPD activities are a mixture of learning activitiesEnsure CPD contributes to quality of practice and service deliverySeek to ensure CPD benefits service userPresent a written CPD profile upon request

  • Who do we do it for? CTU RequirementsTo comply with MRC GCP and ICH GCP, all members of staff must maintain a complete record of their ongoing personal development to demonstrate that they are competent to perform duties appropriate to their role in each trial.

  • Who do we do it for? Yourself


  • Who is responsible for ensuring CPD is being conducted?

    CPD is based on individual responsibility, trust and self-evaluation However, employers do have a responsibility to support you with your CPD

  • Benefits of CPDConfident because you have the evidence to show that you can practice effectively.Capable because your CPD skills equip you to meet the changing demands of practiceCompetent because you have an up to date knowledge and skills base

  • How do I conduct CPD? Follow the CPD learning process in a structured way Undertake CPD activities appropriate to meeting identified learning needs Capture your learning from these activities in an appropriate way and store it in a portfolio of evidence Consider how what you have learned will impact on your practice

  • How do I conduct CPD?Link your development into your appraisal and personal development process Discuss with relevant colleagues what learning needs you have and what appropriate CPD activities are available to you to meet them. Employers can give advice and guidance.

  • The CPD Process

  • What is a CPD portfolio?

    This is a private collection of evidence that demonstrates learning and development as well as a tool for planning future learning.It is more than a folder with some certificates in!

  • What is the difference between a CPD portfolio and a profile? A profile is a public collection of evidence which is selected and extracted from your portfolio for a particular purpose and to present to a particular audience e.g. the HPC, prospective employer or higher education institution for accreditation.

  • HPC ProfileProfiles for HPC re-registration should consist of:Front coverContents pageSummary of recent work/practice for the last 2 years (max 500 words)Documentary evidence provided by the registrant to support statements about CPD made in the profile (max 1500 words).See example for clinical specialist

  • How do I make a CPD portfolio?

    Get a folder!Decide what CPD activities and evidence you want to include in your portfolio? Section1 Personal Information? Section 2 Personal development plan? Section 3 Professional Development: Current Activities? Section 4 Professional Development: Evaluation and Reflection? Section 5 - Storage

  • What about my CTU Personal Development Folder?Congruous to your CPD portfolio.The purpose is to demonstrate you are competent to perform the duties appropriate to your role in the CTU. Needs to be continually updated.Recommendation that you maintain a log of internal and external training in your CTU PD folder.Appraisal and evaluation documents will be kept separately as these are personal documents.

  • When do I start my CPD portfolio?

    If not already, TODAY!No value in trying to recall incidental or informal training from the past move forward Acceptable to just include proof of previous formal training e.g. certificates and then start documenting the complete CPD process from now.

  • Section 1 Personal InformationTips for updating your CVCSP CV Proforma is suitable for your portfolio/PD folder but not for applicationsIt is not meant to tell the reader everything you have done since you qualified!
