This activity particularly supports GP’s as CPD changes occur in 2022-2023, and a professional development plan is required. However, the research skills and the plan will be applicable to other health care professionals.

Professional self-development plans (PDPs) are increasingly used to guide professional education, and this workshop will explore the reasons for this. Evidence for their use will be sought and their value explored.

This highly interactive and skills-based activity (2 x 2-hour sessions in September, 4 hours in total) also incorporates a review of several research skills as applied to PDPs.

The first session on September 6th will involve a refresher on how to do a literature review and appraise the evidence.

In the second session on September 27th, participants will have appraised some of the evidence for plans, and together the group will design an appropriate draft plan including goals and activities. The group will then apply it to their own learning.

Learning Outcomes
