Continuing professional development (CPD)
The AoMRC has provided a CPD guidance framework for appraisers and appraisees. This document provides guidance to appraisers on what they should consider when reviewing a doctor’s CPD activity, and guidance to doctors on the things they should expect to be discussed during an effective appraisal.
This document will help you and your appraiser structure your supporting information and the appraisal discussion to ensure a proper evaluation of your learning since your previous appraisal, and will also support the development of your personal development plan (PDP).
All participants in the RCOG’s CPD programme should be recording their CPD activities in the RCOG’s CPD/Revalidation ePortfolio, which can be used as evidence in your appraisal. The RCOG’s ePortfolio also allows you to record additional information necessary for revalidation, although there are other ePortfolios available.
