Our critical appraisal courses are now approved for CPD

The Critical Appraisal Online Course, Critical Appraisal Masterclass and Critical Appraisal Workshop have been approved for continuing professional development (CPD) by The CPD Standards Office. This independent accreditation demonstrates that the learning activities offered by The Critical Appraisal Company conform to CPD best practice and are appropriate for inclusion in a formal CPD record. Delegates attending our Masterclass and Workshop events will be given snazzy new CPD certificates of attendance at the end of the events (6 hours for the Masterclass, 12 hours for the Workshop). Subscribers to the Critical Appraisal Online Course will be sent the certificates by email (6 hours).

Continuing professional development (CPD) is expected of most healthcare professionals. Guidelines for CPD have been issued by regulators.

  • General Medical Council
  • General Dental Council
  • Nurses and Midwives Council
  • General Optical Council
  • General Pharmaceutical Council
  • Health and Care Professions Council

Licensed doctors have to revalidate every 5 years and must provide evidence they have engaged in CPD. Specific CPD requirements are largely determined by the relevant Medical Royal Colleges.

  • Royal College of Anaesthetists
  • Royal College of Emergency Medicine
  • Royal College of General Practitioners
  • Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
  • Royal College of Ophthalmologists
