Quality Assurance of the CPD Approval Scheme

The quality assurance report for the CPD approval scheme at the Royal College of Anaesthetists is produced every year for the CPD Board to cover a number of its Terms of Reference, including reviewing the applications received for CPD approval and the subsequent decisions made by the CPD Assessors.

The latest report, available here covers the period 1 November 2017 to 31 October 2018 which was a busy time for the CPD & Revalidation Team. During these 12 months, details of 1,213 events were submitted to the College for CPD approval with the reviews completed by 88 CPD Assessors. The College is extremely grateful for the support and expertise of the CPD Assessors in this important role.

The report describes the College resources available to support CPD and revalidation and it also includes information on the summary delegate feedback which was sampled from many of the CPD-approved events.
