Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
CPD enables paediatricians to maintain and develop their knowledge, skills and competence for effective clinical practice.
CPD is different from the general and specialist postgraduate medical training that precedes a career grade post. After trainees acquire a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) they should participate in the College's CPD scheme.
Whether in the NHS, universities or independent practice, CPD is relevant to all doctors in non-training career grade posts:
- Associate Specialists
- Staff Grade doctors
- Trust doctors
Although it is recommended that our Members and Fellows participate in the RCPCH CPD scheme, this is not compulsory at present. However, CPD has relevance to clinical governance and doctors must be able to demonstrate that CPD is being actively maintained for appraisal and revalidation.
These educational resources help paediatricians and other child health professionals to achieve the essential competences in a number of important areas. Many can be used to support postgraduate paediatric training and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for career grades.
