  • Healthcare professionals must increase their understanding of the need (and possibly statutory requirement) for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to maintain and improve competence to practise in their profession. This book is aimed at practitioners who are state-registered under the Professions Supplementary to Medicine Act, and provides practical guidance on how to develop continuous learning as a strategy for personal and career development. Reflective and evidence-based practice are seen as essential parts of the learning process and are considered here.
