The RCVS launches blog for profession members

The RCVS has launched a blog written by, and for, profession members to encourage colleagues to engage with CPD.

The CPD Champions blog will feature submissions by vets and VNs talking about a range of issues related to CPD, including how to make use of it in practice, how to record it, what type to undertake and balancing it with work and personal life.

Christine Warman, head of education at the RCVS, said: “We hope these blogs will help  other members of the profession think about CPD by sharing ideas and good practice, highlighting ways in which CPD can have an impact on day-to-day work and giving tips and pointers on different types of learning.

“It is important to note CPD does not necessarily have to be expensive and time consuming it comes in many different forms, including mentoring, webinars, clinical audit and work-based observation. The real value of CPD is how you use it and put it into practice.”
