E-learning resources support paediatricians and other child health professionals to achieve the essential competences in a number of important areas. These can be used to support your training and CPD.
Does e-learning count towards CPD? This varies by institution. The RCPCH recognises e-learning as part of Personal CPD, and a maximum of 20 credits of this category may contribute to the annual recommended total, where one credit is equal to one hour of self-directed e-learning. For non-RCPCH we advise you speak to your professional body for more information.
