Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
I try to reflect on my activities on a monthly basis. I find it easier to keep track and to record a more meaningful record. That’s why I like an online system as I can do it on the train, during a quiet moment or anywhere I like #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Q1 #OTalk
Tara Watts @embracingOT
Tuning in for my first #OTalk 😊
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@preston_jenny Excellent strategy! #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
It generally works for me #OTalk otherwise I forget some of the important learning
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@preston_jenny Agreed, I also *try* for monthly, I also like to do a little summary IE, a list weekly to help me remember at the end of the month! #OTalk
Elle, Level II Occupational Therapy Student @elleOT2019
I'm in the US. CPD is equiv to what we call CEU (continuing Ed credit). Although I'm a student, I will be checking them quarterly as I plan to apply for licensure in several states & will want to make sure that I'm meeting each states req for maintaining licensure. #OTALK
#OTalk @OTalk_
Q2. #OTalk Do you have a strategic overview of your CPD activities? https://t.co/4Bi6HxSH7w
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@elleOT2019 Yes, that must make it more complicated, having different requirements! Thank goodness we only have one regulator here! #Otalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
I like to consider my CPD activities within the 5 pillars of my role and within the types of learning as defined by the HCPC to ensure a range of learning activities and learning styles #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@OTalk_ For my strategic overview I have a spreadsheet, so can do pretty graphs to show which areas I have covered and which I need to focus on next, or plan to focus on! #OTalk
Sarah Carter @ot_saz
@OTalk_ I have an overview, I'm not entirely sure it's strategic! #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@preston_jenny Yes, variety is very important not just for HCPC, but to keep me motivated! #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@ot_saz @OTalk_ Do you monitor the types of CPD you have engaged in? Categorise in any way? #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Yes that is important @Helen_OTUK and also it feels less demanding as some of my most significant learning occurs during unexpected exchanges and informal situations #OTalk
Gilly- does- Doing @GillyGorry
@Helen_OTUK @OTalk_ I use my diary and calendar to log events, more detail added in notes or evidence. I'm s but if a hoarder and love my paper but I've been talking photos and using my Google drive to store almost everything #otalk it not very organized at the moment though.
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@preston_jenny Agreed, I often list conversations in my weekly review. Then expand / research further.... or when I have gone on an internet exploration, find all sorts of wonders #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Absolutely @Helen_OTUK me too 😀 #OTalk
Sarah Carter @ot_saz
@Helen_OTUK @OTalk_ Hmm. Not really. Gaps in knowledge are discussed in supervision & peer superivision which steers plans for future learning & searching out appropriate opportunities. Can be very difficult to prioritise & spend time on more effective CPD when clinical workload is high. #OTalk
Lisa Johns @LisaJJohns
@OTalk_ #OTalk supervisions and appraisals are helpful records for CPD. In my first year qualified I was fortunate to access so much CPD I need to narrow it down now and focus on a few key areas!
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@ot_saz @OTalk_ I was thinking about types of activities, as the HCPC want to see an range of things, not all one type. Also stops me getting bored! #OTalk
Elle, Level II Occupational Therapy Student @elleOT2019
I will categorize mine based on broad themes: adults, peds, mental health, etc. #OTalk
Tara Watts @embracingOT
@OTalk_ Last year I was registered as a non-practicing OT but this year I'm happy to be registered as a practicing OT. This means I am definitely in CPD planning mode. With a new job, reviewing my overall CPD goals is a necessity and I'm also enjoying the new direction. #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Q3 #OTalk How do you decide you have covered a topic or need to cover a topic? https://t.co/rFoykKOUxD
Suzanne Simpson @SimpsonResearch
@OTalk_ It’s becoming something I’ve looked at in more detail over the last few years and from a different perspective. Previously I was focused on clinical skills but now I’m looking more a career development and skills to develop others #OTalk
Sarah Carter @ot_saz
@Helen_OTUK @OTalk_ I think luckily variety isn't too much of a problem as my role & opps are very varied. But it's interesting to actively consider how this could be further developed. #OTalk
Iris Benson MBE @irisbenson100
RT @OTalk_: #OTalk in 15 mins... grab a drink, maybe a snack and settle in..... ResOTlutions! Come and join us for the first chat of 2019,…
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@SimpsonResearch @OTalk_ Do you use the @theRCOT career development framework? #OTalk
SuzanneW_1 @SuzanneW_1
@OTalk_ We can suggest topics, speakers and put together a timetable. This has included nurse specialists, reps, a paper on your own interest #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
I don’t know if I am that strategic!! Some of my topics are determined by my PDP and mandatory training. I tend to reflect on CPD experiences and see where they fit with my needs but you’ve got me thinking I might need a different approach #OTalk
Suzanne Simpson @SimpsonResearch
@Helen_OTUK @OTalk_ @theRCOT I have looked at it and plan to book in some time to actually start using it #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@preston_jenny Yes, that age old question, how do you know you don't know something? #OTalk
Elle, Level II Occupational Therapy Student @elleOT2019
By writing out specific objectives I liked to achieve. Then researching CPD/CEU events that would assist in meeting those objectives. #Otalk
Suzanne Rastrick @SuzanneRastrick
@OTalk_ @Helen_OTUK Happy New Year #OTalk & good wishes to all colleagues participating in the chat. @OTalk_
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
It’s a great tool @SimpsonResearch you will find it really helpful @Helen_OTUK @theRCOT @StephanieFraser #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@SuzanneRastrick @OTalk_ Happy new year to you too Suzanne. #OTalk
Suzanne Simpson @SimpsonResearch
@OTalk_ I think it depends on your area of work and what your interests are, it also depends on what the service or team needs too #OTalk
Tara Watts @embracingOT
@OTalk_ I'm in the process of working out a strategic plan so advice is welcome. At the moment, I have a notebook dedicated to just OT plans, thoughts, and blog ideas which helps. My blog will also help me keep an overview of my CPD goals and progress. #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@preston_jenny @SimpsonResearch @theRCOT @StephanieFraser I need to make it more part of my routine, but have made a steady start! #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Apologies @StephanieFraser and @SetG75 I got my Stephanie’s confused #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@SimpsonResearch @OTalk_ Yes, presenting and sharing to the team is a great way of demonstrating your learning! #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
I agree to a point @ot_saz but clinical generates lots of amazing CPD opportunities also #OTalk.
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@ciderwithsophie @ot_saz @OTalk_ Have discussed this with @GillyGorry a few times over the years! #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTalk_ I’m in a position where a lot of what I do professionally can count as CPD - my MSc, service audit and development, training of others. So no timetabled review period but think about it ad hoc, very often #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@ciderwithsophie @embracingOT @OTalk_ yes, blogging and recording your CPD is different needs. But all your CPD stuff should also maintain confidentiality. But agree not everything you do for CPD is blogable. #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTalk_ I have a mental overview, and my annual PDR process often contains the bulk of my big CPD efforts anyway #OTalk
Suzanne Simpson @SimpsonResearch
@Helen_OTUK @OTalk_ When I was working on the wards we would discuss upcoming cpd opportunities such as courses, conferences, service development opportunities. People’s interests and where they were currently on rotation would need to be balanced out. We always shared anything we did #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTalk_ Service need, team need, individual patients need, own interests. Informal discussion with colleagues or friends in similar fields can raise areas for development #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Some of my best case studies have come from clinical discussions with some deeper reflections, and possibly some reading to substantiate my thinking. The reflection and reading can be done at any time #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Q4 What CPD activities did you completed in 2018 that you really enjoyed? – This may give others some ideas of things to do. https://t.co/N7Ka3uhDnK

#OTalk excellent idea!
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Excellent well done @ciderwithsophie @Helen_OTUK #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk, another excellent idea!
Elle, Level II Occupational Therapy Student @elleOT2019
None that I can count at the moment. Still a student. Did attend my state's annual conference. #OTalk
Tara Watts @embracingOT
@OTalk_ I am using my PPR and meetings with my supervisor as an initial guide then I consider my personal passion topics/areas. #OTalk
SuzanneW_1 @SuzanneW_1
@OTalk_ MND specialist nurse, depth of knowledge and experience #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Following up with Q5 quickly as related.... Do you have any topics that you feel you need to explore but don’t have a plan on how to do so yet? https://t.co/tF83zV0iv0
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@SuzyorkOT @OTalk_ Did you get to spend time with the nurse? a team meeting? #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
For me it was participating in @theRCOT debate at the annual conference. I learnt so much preparing my argument and had great fun delivering. I also learned how to debate apparently as we won @dianecox61. This could easily be translated into a topical debate at work #OTalk
Suzanne Simpson @SimpsonResearch
@OTalk_ Writing for publication, talking to Salford students about research, completing online MND training, attending the MND symposium, starting an internship, continuing to develop HCA training with my psychology colleague, facilitating R&D idea sessions with SLT colleague #OTalk
SuzanneW_1 @SuzanneW_1
@Helen_OTUK @OTalk_ Yes, could ask qs and discuss anything really. As a newbie it's great to encounter their experience, and also gives insight into OT input, others shared their practice #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk
SuzanneW_1 @SuzanneW_1
@OTalk_ That sounds really good #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@preston_jenny @theRCOT @dianecox61 Oh yes, that would be such fun in the workplace! #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTalk_ Continuing with my MSc and attending a conference ran by the department I work in. Big ideas for increasing AHP involvement in the conference next year #OTalk
Vicki Lynas @V_the_OT
@OTalk_ Late to the fold #OTalk but I completed couple of online courses around mental health, autism and adhd. Really interesting and got me thinking about my future career after qualifying
Suzanne Rastrick @SuzanneRastrick
@OTalk_ Writing a reflective log after chairing an international conference #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTalk_ Taking a student is always great CPD #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
I’ve found it gets easier and quicker the more I do it. I also discovered it is about giving this equal priority as without evidence of ongoing development we are not fit to practice!!! #OTalk
Suzanne Simpson @SimpsonResearch
@OTalk_ Forgot @NW_RCOT Shout about Practice event that was definitely highlight!! #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@SimpsonResearch @OTalk_ @NW_RCOT of course it was! ha ha ha #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@elleOT2019 Training to be an OT could be seen as the greatest CPD of all... #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Wouldn’t it just @Helen_OTUK 😂😂 #OTalk
Lelanie @LelanieBrewer
I’m not chairing but very excited about presenting & attending #AOTA19 & writing it up #OTalk
Dr Stephanie Tempest @SetG75
@SimpsonResearch @Helen_OTUK @OTalk_ @theRCOT Really pleased to hear this 😃. Early evaluation of #RCOTCareerFramework shows it helps people to identify broader #CPD needs across practice, leadership, research and teaching / learning skills. Would be interested to hear how you find it 👍🏽 #OTalk
Elle, Level II Occupational Therapy Student @elleOT2019
My interest in infant- and maternal mental health has grown o e the course of OT student journey. Luckily, I've found great mentors who are guiding me through the learning process. #Otalk
Suzanne Simpson @SimpsonResearch
@Helen_OTUK @OTalk_ @NW_RCOT It was great, fab talks and the audience feedback was really supportive. Plus some people motivated me to submit an abstract to conference 😜 #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@preston_jenny @ot_saz Completely agree Jenny, even just day to day clinical practice can lead to so much good CPD - reflecting on an MDT, learning something new about a patient you are seeing, teaching other colleagues #OTalk
Lelanie @LelanieBrewer
#Countmein2018 @OTatBrunel was brilliant and one of my 2018 CPD highlights. I love #phd meetings at my uni @UniofNewcastle too. #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Wowzer only 5 mins left of the first #OTalk of 2019... So has this evening chat highlighted some ResOTlutions? What are your take away thoughts?
Suzanne Rastrick @SuzanneRastrick
@LelanieBrewer Brilliant! Enjoy that on all levels... My CPD for 2019 includes the opening plenary @theRCOT conference! #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@SuzanneRastrick @LelanieBrewer @theRCOT Looking forward to it.... #OTalk #RCOT2019
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTalk_ Oh, I also was on the panel for a Schwartz Round (may have been the tail end of 2017??!) - amazing (but emotionally challenging) experience! #OTalk
Suzanne Simpson @SimpsonResearch
@SetG75 @Helen_OTUK @OTalk_ @theRCOT I will let you know! LTC OTs are planning to discuss it further during one of our professional meetings too 👍 #OTalk

@OTalk_ As a team we are standardising our cognitive assessment procedure and ensuring we have available the most appropriate assessments for all of our patients. Will be good personal CPD #OTalk

Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Thanks for a great start to the year @Helen_OTUK #OTalk definitely some food for thought and my resolution is to work even harder on my monthly reviews and updates. I might also steal your spreadsheet idea 😂
Lelanie @LelanieBrewer
@SuzanneRastrick @theRCOT Thank you very much! I’m sure your plenary will be brilliant! #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTalk_ Take away thoughts - I do a heck of a lot of CPD but I am truely terrible at documenting and recording this (other than within my PDR). If I was audited by HCPC my sanity would be in tatters. I have a resOTlution right there #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
RT @OTalk_: #OTalk 15th January 2019 – Applying your learning in Practice https://t.co/j3Uqv7Vxjc
Suzanne Simpson @SimpsonResearch
@OTalk_ It’s reminded me that I really should plan in sometime to start working through the OT career framework. I’ve also been meaning to start a journal 📓 to document my journey in my new role which is very unique, so I’m going to start that too #OTalk #NewYearResolutions2019
Suzanne Simpson @SimpsonResearch

I’ve been there with the HCPC audit, hence the reason for regularity and strategy 😂😂 #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@preston_jenny I love a graph! Gives me a clear visual representation of what I have done and what I need to look at! #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Yeah me too, I used the graphs in my HCPC submission @Helen_OTUK #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Well we are officially overtime! Thanks for a great first chat of 2019! Keep your ResOTlutions coming.... Its not just for new year! #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@preston_jenny @theRCOT @dianecox61 Oh, I’m going to suggest a debate for one of our inservice slots - such a good idea! #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@preston_jenny to be precise, more bar charts or pie charts! oh pie.... off for a snack. Chat soon, keep up the good work! #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@preston_jenny Everyone with experience has such good advice! #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Brilliant @Louisepenny87 it truly is a great way to toss around different perspectives. Usually there is no right or wrong answer but it doesn’t half make you think, and it is a safe way to challenge. Good luck and keep us posted @Helen_OTUK #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Thanks @Helen_OTUK you too 👍 #OTalk
