CPD/CET is your way to develop as a professional and stay on top once you have qualified, and to continuously improve standards of patient care. CPD includes all the things you do to earn CET points, but it takes you further than that.
You might be attending courses and workshops, reading articles and holding discussions with colleagues; learning new clinical skills, or studying for a higher qualification; supervising, teaching and assessing; or developing your people management and business skills.
