Subject(s): Online resources: Summary: Continuing professional development (CPD) is essential for all health and social care professionals. It is also beneficial for organisations. Evidence shows that when there is significant investment in CPD, individuals feel valued and their practice improves. In order to maximise the potential of your CPD, this practical handbook guides you through the five TRAMm stages, which are depicted as stations: Tell (T), Record (R), Activity (A), Monitor (M) and measure (m). The tried-and-tested TRAMm model reflects the five standards for CPD laid down by the Health and Care Professions Council; and your own learning needs provide the main focus, enabling you to develop a full CPD portfolio as you progress. At the end of each chapter, there are opportunities to reflect on your learning - and apply theory to practice through a series of tasks. Designed for all levels (from health and social care students to experienced practitioners), this book may also be useful for associated support workers and other healthcare professionals, including doctors, pharmacists, optometrists, nurses and midwives. In addition, some aspects will be relevant for professionals outside healthcare, such as teachers, surveyors and engineers. Above all, this book demonstrates that CPD is closely linked to professional and personal success and well-being, and we should all see it as an essential part of our working lives.
