CPD essentials #physiotalk Mon 1st Feb 8pm GMT

The people have spoken – or at least a twitter poll did!

The top choice for our next chat is to look at CPD essentials. So that is what we will focus on during the tweetchat on Mon 1st Feb at 8pm GMT. Those of you with long memories may remember that one of the first chats we did back in 2014 was around your CPD although then the focus was on your HCPC renewals. Its slightly amazing to think that seven years have now passed!


It is worth reminding you of the HCPC standards though, as this often underpins what you do as CPD. They are that registrants must:

1. maintain a continuous, up-to-date and accurate record of their CPD activities;

2. demonstrate that their CPD activities are a mixture of learning activities relevant to current or future practice;

3. seek to ensure that their CPD has contributed to the quality of their practice and service delivery;

4. seek to ensure that their CPD benefits the service user; and

5. upon request, present a written profile (which must be their own work and supported by evidence) explaining how they have met the standards for CPD.

To support registrants the HCPC have a range of material around CPD, renewal and audit  as do the CSP  for members to access – so there is lots out there to help you with CPD!
