CPD Groups: A Vehicle for Staying on the HPC Registration Road

Abstract

This evaluation describes one work-based Continuing Professional Development group of six occupational therapy staff. The evaluation aimed to identify activities completed by the group and evaluate the group’s effectiveness in meeting the Health Professional Council standards for CPD using a postal survey questionnaire. The group enabled participants to maintain a record of their CPD, to engage in a mixture of learning activities, and improve participants’ practice, service delivery and outcomes for service users and carers. The CPD group enabled participants to meet four of the five HPC standards for CPD, indicating that work based CPD groups offer the potential to overcome many of the previously identified barriers to CPD in an effective way.
