Event description
Your chance to have a say in the future of Continuing Professional Development.

About this Event

In the coming year the Osteopathic Council will be reviewing our approach to Continuing Professional Development ("CPD") and at this year's Osteopathic Council Conference we invite you, as members of the osteopathic profession, to be part of this discussion. This year's Conference is a chance to share with you some of the information we have on what makes a great CPD scheme and to hear your thoughts on what would work best for the osteopathic profession in Aotearoa New Zealand. At the conference we will bring together recent local CPD research along with international material from the UK on CPD best practice. We will also hear from Osteopathic Council Chair and Unitec lecturer Tim Friendlander on methods you can use to assess your learning needs in a CPD context.

Continuing professional development (CPD)

This presentation will discuss the results of research recently completed looking into the NZ professions thoughts and beliefs about CPD. We will look at what CPD you like to choose, how you go about deciding what to do and the barriers you find in accessing CPD. This information will be presented alongside international research delving into the efficacy of CPD and how we can make our professional development really support and expand our practice. In closing we will think through how this information might inform the development of a high quality CPD scheme within NZ. 

Quality Assurance in Practice

One of the core aims of a professional development plan is to ensure and enhance the quality of patient care in practice.  No single professional development plan will suit all practitioners, and it is therefore important that practitioners are able to recognise the areas of their practice that may represent the best targets for their own development.

This presentation will introduce several methods by which a practitioner can identify their own learning needs, and provide a framework to ensure professional development is efficient and targeted to the needs (and interests) of individual practitioners. 

We'd love to hear your views on what kind of CPD scheme works for you as a member of the osteopathic profession.

There are two ways to join us this year.

1. In person at the CQ Hotel in Wellington

2. Online from your own home or office, as we will be live streaming the event.
