Updated CPD Recording System


An improved Continuing Professional Development (CPD) recording system has been launched by the Society on 8th July in preparation for call and review of registrants’ CPD records this month.

This has been created as a result of feedback received from users of the CPD recording system, other CPD stakeholders, the outcomes from the 2007-8 CPD pilot and the recommendations from the research conducted by the Welsh School of Pharmacy

The online V4 and paper V1.4 aim to simplify how entries are made and will make the review and feedback process more user-friendly. The CPD background material, case studies and answers to frequently-asked questions have also been updated.

Please do not be alarmed - absolutely none of your data has been removed on the transition to V4 but any 'optional fields' are now hidden by default. To see all the fields for your entry go to the new 'Optional Fields' page from the main menu and turn the optional fields/competencies/continuing education settings on.

The version 1.4 CPD paper packs can be ordered by calling the pack request line on: .

If you need further information please contact the CPD helpdesk on or email . For technical queries please call or email . For queries relating to submitting your CPD record when called for review email us at:
