2009 saw the first audit of paramedic portfolios by the Health Professions Council (HPC) and later this year, the second national audit will take place. In the first of a two-part evaluation of the use of portfolios in paramedic practice, the history of professional portfolios is chartered including their current position within the paramedic profession. A number of contemporary issues with portfolios are identified, including format and how they relate to a paramedic's continuing professional development. The impact of the Knowledge and Skills Framework on portfolio use is also discussed.
