CPD for Occupational Therapists

Royal College launches film on CPD for OTs

Published on 6th August 2017

The Royal College of Occupational Therapists has released a film outlining what occupational therapists should be doing with regards to CPD.

The film has been produced as occupational therapists are due to renew your registration with the Health and Care Professions Council. A random sample of 2.5 per cent of the profession will be selected to submit a continuing professional development (CPD) profile during this period.

The Royal College hopes the ‘Let’s Talk CPD’ film will be helpful for any occupational therapist who has been selected to be audited by the HCPC.

 Let’s Talk CPD also includes practical advice on how to make CPD a truly tailored and personal experience and will help viewers consider how to incorporate CPD in their everyday life. 

The film is a three way conversation between Dr Stephanie Tempest, the Royal College’s Education Manager (Professional Development); Anne Keen, The Royal College’s Professional Advisor – Enquiry Service and Jonathan Jones, Stakeholder Communications Manager at the HCPC. 

Jones reminded delegates at a Locum Today event earlier this year that CPD is a legal requirement.

The film covers:

  • What does CPD mean to you?
  • What does CPD look like?
  • Who benefits from CPD?
  • How do we know if CPD has made an impact?
  • Top tips.

The film can be watched in its entirety, or available in bite sized extracts; there are also audio only versions available.

Watch the videos today and get support with CPD.
