CPD: are you ready?
Sunday, March 1, 2009
Since 1 July 2006, the Health Professions Council (HPC) has required that all registered health professionals undertake continuing professional development (CPD) as a legal requirement. The initial review of CPD took place in July 2008, with chiropodists and podiatrists being the first professions to be audited, followed by operating department practitioners. Paramedics will first be audited in June 2009. CPD is linked to maintaining your registered status and is the hallmark of a self‑regulating profession. Failure to complete CPD without good reason could mean that a paramedic is refused renewal of his/her registration.
