Share your views on draft new CPD and Peer Discussion Review Guidance: consultation

26 February 2018

We are consulting on draft guidance on our new CPD scheme and the peer discussion review, which is a key element of the new scheme.

Our new CPD scheme aims to better support osteopaths to maintain and enhance practice. We want osteopaths to participate successfully in order to achieve these goals.

The scheme is outlined in the Continuing Professional Development Guidelines (CPD Guidelines)  and the Peer Discussion Review Guidelines (PDR Guidelines) which aim to give osteopaths all the information they need to participate successfully in the CPD scheme, gain reassurance and professional support, and continue to enhance their practice.

The purpose of this consultation is to:

  • seek feedback about the clarity of the guidance ahead of the new CPD scheme coming into force from 1 October 2018, and
  • identify further resources to help osteopaths participate in the CPD scheme successfully, achieving the anticipated benefits of the scheme, which include professional support, learning communities and enhanced patient care.

We would like your views on the draft guidance: you can read the consultation documents and respond on our dedicated consultation page. The closing date is 14 May 2018.

Your feedback will help to inform the final versions of the CPD Guidance and PDR guidance, and will also inform the guidance, ideas and resources on our dedicated CPD website at cpd.osteopathy.org.uk.
