A new set of CPD principles for UK therapists

21 Jan 2019 13:55 | Anonymous

Never Stop LearningA UK working group of health and social care professional bodies has published a new set of principles for continuing professional development (CPD) and lifelong learning.  

The five new principles agreed by the group, which includes the Royal College of Occupational Therapists, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, are that CPD and Lifelong Learning should:

  1. be each person’s responsibility and be made possible and supported by your employer

  2. benefit the service users

  3. improve the quality of service delivery

  4. be balanced and relevant to each person’s area of practice or employment

  5. be recorded and show the effect on each person’s area of practice

Lelanie Brewer, OT and Head of Education Programmes at Sensory Integration Education, said: “We welcome these new CPD principles, particularly the emphasis on improving the quality of service delivery and a focus on the ultimate benefit to patients. Our university-accredited sensory integration courses for therapists more than meet these principles as we help to create a global network of clinicians, highly skilled in assessing and treating people with sensory integration issues.”
