As part of our commitment to you, and the desire to evolve our support of you and your work, we’ve launched an online, journal- affiliated CPD hub.

In partnering with some of the leading healthcare brands, we’ve generated some interesting, insightful and informative courses aimed to expand your knowledge and broaden your skill-set in relation to your core job role and responsibilities. At the moment, the courses fall into six categories – behaviour, child development, conditions, mental health, nutrition and safeguarding – but we will be expanding these as more companies and organisations get involved.

We know that continuing professional development is crucial for all practitioners in your growth and learning throughout your career, and we are acutely aware of the requirements of the NMC’s revalidation process too (see bit.ly/NMC_revalidation). So this will go some way to supporting you in that. If you complete the interactive self-assessment questions at the end of the course, you will receive a certificate to add to your professional portfolio. What could be simpler than that?

How do you do it?

  1. Visit the journal website at communitypractitioner.co.uk/cpd and log on.
  2. Choose which category most interests you or you feel would be the most beneficial, click on this and then choose which specific module appeals.
  3. Read the content, scrolling down to the references at the end.
  4. Click on the blue and white box ‘Click here & complete CPD module’ and a separate window will open.
  5. Answer the five multiple-choice questions given.
  6. Complete your details and a certificate will be emailed to you to confirm your completion of the module.
  7. Add the certificate to your portfolio.

You can, of course, complete as many modules as you wish. They are free to all Unite-CPHVA members.
Look out for alerts in your inbox when new modules become available.
