Continuing professional development (CPD) is an expected, continuous activity for all ODPs, moreover any registrant with 2 years or more on the register could be selected for audit and have to demonstrate their CPD activities. The profession is approaching it's 4th round of audits thais year. Whilst ODPs are inherently good at adapting to evolving situations in a professional way, in line with the needs of service users and the profession, they often struggle to formally demonstrate their CPD activity. The article aims to remind registrants of their mandatory requirements for completing and recording CPD activity, and uses a case study approach to explore what CPD is and how it can be demonstrated.
