Reflective Reading for Allied Health Professionals

HCPC renewal

The HCPC requires you to do regular CPD to stay registered. Did you know you can get CPD credit towards your revalidation for reading a short article and discussing it with colleagues?

Aubrey Keep Library is running reflective reading sessions just for you to help you keep your registration. Please see below for the schedule of upcoming reflective reading group sessions.

Your task:

  • Read a short article in your own time
  • Attend the session and participate in a group discussion

Your reward:

  • Two hours of CPD time
  • Certificate of attendance
  • Material to write a reflective account

PLEASE NOTE: We are still looking for co-facilitators! If you would like to volunteer to co-facilitate a session, have a suggestion for a venue where a session could be run, or you have seen an interesting paper that you would like to discuss at a session, please contact Aubrey Keep Library, at or phone 0300 555 1200 ext. 64504

NEW for 2018: You can now take part in all our Reflective Reading sessions remotely, via WebEx online conference. Just click the "Register for WebEx" next to the session you want to attend remotely and fill in your name and email address to be able to take part.
