Therapists must increase their understanding of ContinuingProfessional Development (CPD) to maintain and improve competence.Every practitioner will need to take steps to maintain anddemonstrate continued competence under the provisions of the newHealth Act 1999. This book considers current policy on CPD and discusses thetheoretical basis for maintaining competence and for adultlearning. Primarily, however, it provides practical guidance on howto develop a strategy for professional and career development, andon portfolio preparation that shows evidence of professionalupdating and CPD. Many examples are given of activities in theareas of clinical work, management, education and research that canbe used for CPD.
