Title: Continuing Professional Development CPD Update

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Update
  • Pharmacy Directorate
  • NHS Education for Scotland

RPSGB CPD Framework
How can I record my CPD?
  • Online (encouraged and preferred by RPSGB)
  • - You will require your RPSGB membership
    number, username and password
  • Desk-top format
  • More info available form RPSGB
  • Paper submissions
  • -only on RPSGB approved documentation
  • -Must stick to the boxes provided as
    scanned into system and anything out with the
    boxes may be lost

What must I do for the RPSGB?
  • Make a minimum of 9 CPD entries per year (from
    March 2009) which reflect the context and scope
    of your practice as a pharmacist or as a
    registered pharmacy technician.
  • Submit your CPD entries when asked to do so
  • - CPD records will be called from July 2009

You should also.
  • Maintain a learning portfolio with records of
    attendance and key learning points from
    continuing education and notes of other learning
    e.g. through work.
  • This may be requested by the society if there is
    a problem with your CPD entries or if someone has
    made a complaint about you as a professional.

Why must you comply with the RPSGB standards?
  • Registrants are in breach of the Code of Ethics
  • There is failure to respond to request for CPD
  • -you will receive one letter 2 reminders
  • -you will have approximately 6 weeks to
  • Anyone with a personal problem should negotiate
    an extension.
  • They fail to submit their CPD records
  • Breach of Code of Ethics - cases considered
    under non-referral procedures. A black mark will
    be put against your name on the register
  • Repeated breach of Code of Ethics - referred to
    RPSGB Investigating Committee ? Ultimately
    struck off register.

Where do I start ?
  • You can start at any point of the CPD cycle when
    recording your CPD
  • reflection, planning, action or
  • Need to have a variety of different types of
  • BUT.
  • The RPSGB states that..
  • Some of your entries must start at reflection

What happens if I have documented nothing to date?
  • You must complete 9 records per annum from March
    2009. Records will be viewed in a 5 year cycle,
    thus if your CPDs are requested in March 2010,
    you should be submitting-
  • 9 entries from March 2009-2010
  • Some entries from March 2008-2009
  • Some entries from March 2007-2008
  • Some entries from March 2006-2007
  • Some entries from March 2005-2006
  • By 2014 we should all have a minimum of 45 CPD
    records to submit!

Do not panic!
  • Start today. Aim to undertake and document at
    least 1-2 pieces of learning per month. This may
    be easier in a group or by having a buddy call
    you at the beginning of each month to motivate
  • Look back in your diary for the last 4 years-what
    learning events did you attend? - what did you
    learn? Document these now! The longer you wait,
    the more difficult it will become to remember

When starting at reflection
  • Ask yourself the question-
  • What do I want to learn? or What do I want to be
    able to
  • do?
  • e.g. More about homeopathic treatments for
  • Why?
  • e.g. A patient asked me to advise the best
    homeopathic treatment for her cystitis

Planning is next..
  • Deadline date
  • - When do I need to know this? Pick a realistic
    achievable date !
  • What impact will this learning have on me, my
    colleagues, my patients, the organisation?
  • - Important to spend a bit of time on this
    section and consider all the elements of this
    question. If the learning will have little impact
    on all 4 elements, should you be doing it?

In our earlier example.
  • I will learn about the homeopathic treatment
    options available in cystitis. This is a common
    ailment and will assist me in directing patients
    to the best treatment options available thus
    having an important impact on the patient.
    Providing good pharmaceutical care to these
    patients will have a positive impact on the
    organisation or business I work for. I plan to
    share my learning with my colleagues and
    pre-registration trainee, thus my learning will
    have an impact on their knowledge and practice
  • Important to write something here, do not just
    tick the available boxes

How could you learn this?
  • Consider different options. You can list them
    all, you dont have to do them all, but may help
    identify the best learning method for you
  • Attending a course? not possible, need answer in
    2 days
  • Spend some time in homeopathic hospital shadowing
    pharmacist ? not possible, need answer in 2 days
  • Phone homeopathic pharmacist and discuss
    treatment options
  • Complete a distance learning package ? not
    possible, need answer in 2 days
  • Read available published papers on e-library ?
    time consuming

  • Just pick the option or options that most suit
  • -your learning style
  • -the level of knowledge you wish to have on the
  • -your timescale
  • Remember to use a variety of options in the CPD
    reports that
  • you submit.
  • Stating you attended a course for all your
    learning needs will
  • be picked up in your report. Using only one
    method of learning is not considered good

Action is next..
  • What have you learned?
  • Do go into some detail here so there is some
    evidence that the learning has actually taken
  • In our example..
  • I had a 45 minute discussion with the
    pharmacist at the homeopathic hospital who was
    very helpful and felt that in elderly patients
    treatment X would be the preferred option however
    in younger patients treatment Y taken 6 times a
    day with food would be better.

Evaluation of your learning
  • How have your applied or used this learning?
  • An important question and must be completed.
  • e.g. I was able to direct the patient to the best
    treatment for cystitis and able to counsel her
    on how to take the drug and when to expect relief
    from her symptoms
  • Describe any feedback you have had ?
  • An important question and must be completed.
  • e.g. My patient and her husband thanked me for
    the information I had given them. She bought the
    product I suggested and I wrote out a dosage
    schedule for her

Have fully met your learning objective?
  • If you feel you havent fully met your learning
    objective you will be asked what you have still
    to learn
  • e.g. Although I now know about the 2 homeopathic
    products for cystitis that I sell, there are many
    more products that I dont stock in the shop at
  • Why did you not fully meet your learning
  • Time constraints-the patient was returning in
    2 days
  • A more detailed study of homeopathic medicines
    would be
  • your next learning objective!

An example starting at ACTION
  • Please describe the activity you have undertaken?
  • Attended a NES Training Evening on respiratory
  • What have you learnt as a result?
  • The importance of ensuring an accurate
    asthma/COPD diagnosis.
  • A further appreciation of the Step-Wise
    approach and the need to move up and down the
    steps as the condition changes.
  • The change in guidance that adds a long acting
    Beta 2 agonist before increasing the dose

  • Please describe an example of how you have
    applied this learning?
  • I now check prescriptions where steroid doses are
    above 800 mcg/day and discuss with the patient if
    a long acting Beta 2 agonist has not been
    prescribed and symptoms are not well controlled.
    I was able to explain to a patient who was
    prescribed oral steroids for the first time the
    nature of the step-wise approach.
  • Describe any feedback from those on whom this
    learning has had an impact
  • Patients have thanked me both for my advice and
    for my interest in their condition.
  • Have you identified any learning needs as a
    result of undertaking this activity?
  • Yes/No

What happens after I submit my records?
  • Generation of an executive summary ? this will be
    mailed to you
  • Automatic generation of feedback report? online
    and more detailed than the executive summary

Why CPD review?
  • Ensure compliance with CPD standards
  • Encourage support via feedback process
  • Encourage engagement in CPD
  • Increase practitioner confidence and competence
  • Prepares for statutory regulation revalidation
  • Protects the public

Review criteria
  • Reviewers will
  • ONLY review whats in CPD entry
  • ONLY base feedback on review criteria
  • Reviewers will not
  • make value judgements on content
  • Apply their quality criteria
  • Will not give advice on what they would do
