The learning journey continues...

CPD has always been important to me and I have been an active participant for over 15 years, thanks to an old healthcare manager of mine, Steve, who clearly explained why it was so vital and was a good role model himself.

Managers like him are far and few between, mainly because he relished in the fact that I was learning and developing and challenging him and his ideas, often during our time in the photocopying room preparing for an imminent training session, he and I would play mental ping pong and find that from such an exchange, new and interesting models and concepts would be explored and created.

Keeping up to date with professional practice, irrespective of whether your professional body requires it of you for re-registration or not, is an absolute must, and certainly something that should be offered as evidence of competence and quality when speaking to clients during the commissioning process.

My current involvement in CPD is extremely active here are just a few of the things I am involved in: attending and speaking at conferences, doing research and writing papers, undertaking additional training and qualification, participating in new and exciting discussion forums and public speaking.

Phew, this should keep me busy for a while!

Why not try it for yourself?
