Its audit time again....
April is here and May will soon be on us. May sees the biennial renewal of HCPC registration for podiatrists & chiropodists. It’s during this renewal period that 2.5% of podiatrists will be randomly selected by the Health & Care Professions Council to submit a portfolio of evidence as evidence that demonstrates in the last two years you have:
· Undertaken CPD activities on a regular basis.
· Kept a record of these activities.
· Carried out different kinds of learning activities.
· Undertaken activities that might improve your practice and benefit your service user
Remember its not the number of hours of CPD that count but the quality of the CPD.
Just a reminder, if you are a regular visitor to the foot expert website that any activities you undertake here can potentially count as CPD, and been included in your CPD portfolio. This maybe reflecting on a blog or what you have learned from a webinar or from a dermoscopy course, for example. Even conversations or communications can count as CPD. In addition, there are a range of other related activities that are eligible as CPD. These can be found on the HCPC website:
