It was added at the GM 2010 that ER-WCPT will continue monitoring the development of Systematic CPD including registration and re-registration during the period 2010 - 2012.
Denmark supported the adoption of the report on CPD at the 2012 GM with the following addition: The MOs should collaborate with workplaces and with education institutes/universities re development, promotion and assessment of systematic CPD. Norway also supported the adoption of the report and proposed to follow up and monitor the work in CPD within the MOs.
The working plan for the Education Matters WG 2010 – 2012 included:
Following on the previous work carried out by the previous WGs it was decided that an update on CPD, registration, re-registration and/or specialisation be collected from the MOs with a particular interest to examine the motivations/barriers towards the implementation of CPD, and also to examine these in the context of registration and specialisation issues. This paper is reporting the outcome of a questionnaire that was circulated to MOs during 2011. The document was adopted at the 2012 GM. Download the document
