This thoroughly revised edition of the popular Strategic Guide to Continuing Professional Development for Health and Care Professionals includes the latest professional policy guidance updates as well as the results of the authors’ ongoing research into professional development within health and social care. The importance of applying new learning in practice is reflected by the updated TRAMm model, in which ‘A’ now stands for ‘Apply’ (rather than ‘Activity’, as in the first edition).

There is a new chapter on changing mindsets about CPD and how to create opportunities for learning and development, despite limited resources in the current economic climate. The authors have also expanded the chapter on CPD engagement, with updated evidence on exploring your preferred styles of learning.

Continuing professional development (CPD) is essential for all health and social care professionals. It is also beneficial for organisations. Evidence shows that when there is significant investment in CPD, individuals feel valued and their practice improves.

In order to maximise the potential of your CPD, this practical handbook guides you through the updated five TRAMm stages or ‘stations’: Tell (T), Record (R), Apply (A), Monitor (M) and measure (m). The tried-and-tested TRAMm Model reflects the five standards for CPD laid down by the Health and Care Professions Council; and your own learning needs provide the main focus, enabling you to develop a full CPD portfolio as you progress. At the end of each chapter, there are opportunities to reflect on your learning – and apply theory to practice through a series of tasks.

Designed for all levels (from health and social care students to experienced practitioners), this book may also be useful for associated support workers and other healthcare professionals, including doctors, pharmacists, optometrists, nurses and midwives. In addition, some aspects will be relevant for professionals outside healthcare, such as teachers, surveyors and engineers.
