Continuing Development Regional Training Events April - June 2015

Wednesday 08 April 2015 - Tuesday 30 June 2015 at 10:00-16:00

In 2014 Unite in health ran the first Regional events on Record Keeping and Duty of Care from March – April which was successful.

This year Unite in health will be running the second round of Regional events from April -June focusing on Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Raising Concerns.

CPD is increasingly becoming mandatory in all professions and even more so since Sir Robert Francis Report on Mid Staffordshire hospital 2012. Continuing professional development is important because it ensures you continue to be competent and fit to practise in your profession. It is an ongoing process and continues throughout a professional’s career. CPD is a commitment to Life Long Learning and it is about staying competent through your professional career. 

Why not take advantage of this event to find out:-

•    What is CPD
•    Why your CPD is Important
•    What are the requirements of Regulatory bodies
•    How to plan your CPD
•    What are the benefits of CPD
•    About CPD activities
•    Opportunities on how to demonstrate your CPD evidence
•    About the E-Portfolio
•    How to link your CPD activity to the KSF

With so many changes in the NHS, care provision can be marginalised. The pressure from the Government to cut down on the costs of patient care provision may make professionals anxious and apprehensive about the  care they give. Health care professionals increasingly worry about patient care and safety as well as the health and safety of the environment they work in. This session takes you through the step by step process of raising any concerns you may have. This session will help you understand:

•    What raising concerns mean?
•    The types of concerns
•    Your duty to raise concerns
•    How to raise concerns
•    Your Employers duty to acknowledge, investigate and respond

     Flow chart on raising concerns
•    Practical examples of how to raise concerns formally
•    What happens next?
•    The whistle blowing process
