Last chance to plan your CPD activities to meet annual and cycle requirements:
 
With just 3.5 months to go until the end of the CPD cycle, do you have any outstanding CPD requirements highlighted in your online record? You can check your individual requirements through Monitor My Progress. Remember, if you started CPD after 1 July 2014, your requirements will be pro-rata. 
 
Quality enhancement activities:
 
Have you met your Quality Enhancement CPD requirements?
 
Additional Quality Enhancement activities have been added to the CPD Online library to accommodate participants with little or no-clinical time (e.g. VMO, locum, etc.). These activities include case-based discussions, clinical results reviews, presenting cases for peer review, and team debriefing sessions.
