Well we have had a great response to the questions... so they will be coming think and fast this evening. But don't forget we will not grab the transcript for at least 24 hrs so time to re-read and respond... #OTalk Just a little reminder about the 'House Rules' https://t.co/Fw0npw3d7g

Hello folks! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
And I hope you guys are aware that I got a 90% rating for curating TEDxAlmansorPark. I heard that is a fantastic score for a first time event! Now- where will OT go from here? #OTalk

#OTalk @OTalk_
All this evenings questions have come from the community... so in no particular order..... #OTalk Questions 1. How do we identify the CPD in our everyday practice?
Elizabeth @Lizzie_OT
@OTalk_ Hello all 👋 #OTalk #CPD
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OTalk_ I think we have to constantly reflect what we do on a daily basis- no matter what role we play in, or activities we do (if it is anything OT related). #otalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
The ordinary and extraordinary which make a difference to service users, the service and our practice #OTalk
Shelley Faulkner OT @shelleyamybeth
An #OTalk about #CPD...this could be interesting! #OccupationalTherapy #ProfessionalDevelopment
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@OTalk_ #OTalk in everyday practice I would say went I intentionally seek information, have a moment that makes me stop and think, an interesting discussion ..... so many way... but is it then what I go ion to acknowledge as learning from those inspirational sparks?
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@OTalk_ reflect, reflect & then reflect some more! Reflective practice is something you are taught about a great deal & it’s easy to keep up with that habit when qualified #otalk

#OTalk Question 3 Does every CPD activity require a reflection as evidence ?
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@OTalk_ I quite like Borton’s model of reflection.. quite simple and quick #otalk https://t.co/CspT1KYEFh
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@otramblings Sometimes I do informal CPD with folks like you guys... or a monthly OT committee that I am serving in AOTA. #otalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@OTalk_ though as a student I did prefer Gibb’s model as there are more prompt questions #otalk https://t.co/oGMs2EMniO
#OTalk @OTalk_
#Otalk Question 4 ... still on the theme of reflection: How long do written reflections need to be ?
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OTalk_ I will say no- but for some people who like record keeping, that can be fascinating to track how much growth/progress were made since day 1! #otalk

@OTalk_ That's interesting as I use that model (Borton) but I've always been citing it as Rolfe's! 🙂I fnd it the most effective way for me to structure reflections where the subject matter is more important than struggling with a convoluted model. #otalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@AshleyN64 @OTalk_ I agree, it’s the moments that you learnt a great deal from / feel made you develop that need to be formally reflected on #otalk

Can definitely be creative in ways to show learning #OTalk may do a reflection to back up, but not required for every single activity
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
No #Otalk why would it?
Elizabeth @Lizzie_OT
@katy_maggi @OTalk_ I agree with this also, dependent on the situation. I’ve also found the 3 (or 5) whys approach helpful for problem solving/ fully analysing a situation #OTalk #CPD

Simon Jacques @JacqusieOT
@OTalk_ Reflections often happen for me several days later when thinking over a CPD activity and it's nice to have a reflective way of going through things just in my head. If it sticks & mulls around somewhat, I'll get writing and researching though! #otalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
I link something with the HCPC guidelines each month #otalk. I do the same for everyone I supervise.
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@OTalk_ including this @cpdme app!! log your CPD via the app 👍🏼 #otalk https://t.co/BthPUaZfu9

Simon Jacques @JacqusieOT
@OTalk_ I try not to go further than a side and half of A4... if it turns into 2 sides, I'm either over thinking or not being concise enough... #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 6 Is there a correct way to structure your CPD file?
Elizabeth @Lizzie_OT
@OTalk_ Yes, I keep a paper log and a have working document. But have recently been researching online apps including @cpdme and HCPC+ which can be directly linked with @The_HCPC standards I believe #OTalk #CPD
AshleyOT @AshleyN64
@OTalk_ I use Dropbox but am trying to find a better online alternative to track CPD easier! Am very keen for recommendations for this! Great question! #OTalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@OTalk_ There’s lots of guidance out there, I made mine with various sections but It’s hard to fit every piece of evidence into a section I feel.. you have to go with what feels best for you #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 7 Do people keep their CPD folders from previous years ?
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
If it’s providing evidence for each of the HCPC standards you know you have everything to hand if you are called for audit. It does tick all the boxes #otalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
Archive every two years. This year will be Oct 2019.#otalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@AshleyN64 @OTalk_ I use OneNote and a spreadsheet.... #OTalk
Vicki @V_the_OT
@OTalk_ I have used the HCPC template for mine. I found it very useful and that it helped me decide on what to put in and that I also had a diverse set of evidence #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
@SarahLotstudent Just 1 T in #OTalk
Katherine Swithenbank @katy_maggi
@OTalk_ I try to collect evidence as I’m going along, use a log of training I’ve attended, save emails that could be used as evidence. I can’t say it’s very organised though, it’s mostly a pile of certificates and power point presentations in my desk drawer 😱 #OTalk

Simon Jacques @JacqusieOT
@OTalk_ I tend to use sections such as RCOT events, Uni CPD such as @shout_team work and then all my individual work opportunities either on placement or from employers. It's all in a file that's getting a bit too big now & should really start digitalising it all... #otalk
Sarah @SarahLotstudent

#OTalk Question 8 What can I do as a student to get started on building a CPD portfolio?
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
Start with your placement booklets. They will give you your strengths and areas for development. Use the competencies and link theory to practice as you go along. #otalk
AshleyOT @AshleyN64
@katy_maggi @OTalk_ This sounds very accurate! It’s challenging to incorporate this into everyday practice. #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OTalk_ Find out what is your vision for your career first. Then focus on CPD opportunities that directly or indirectly address such skills or areas of development. #otalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@OTalk_ I think different parts of a written reflection lend themselves to different formats and lengths; e.g. when using Gibbs I think Feelings makes sense as a longer, more stream-of-consciousness paragraph while Action Plan should probably be simple bulletpoints #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 9... these are all very similar.... a) Do you need to block out names and addresses on certificates and letters put in CPD files? b) For emails and certificates used as evidence do you have to hide the company name and professionals name for confidentiality?

#OTalk @OTalk_
#Otalk Question 9 c) How does everyone maintain confidentiality in their CPD file?
Elizabeth @Lizzie_OT
@OTalk_ The @theRCOT Career Development Framework could be a useful tool for planning #CPD activities and direction. Also @The_HCPC has some useful resources #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OTalk_ I will answer the second one- if it is for my portfolio for my academia job, I will just turn in artifacts or whatever evidence as is, as long as my department agrees with me on what is appropriate. #otalk
AshleyOT @AshleyN64
@OTalk_ Try to record all learning experiences. This can be reflections, case studies, leaflets of certain events or certificates. Finding a structure is the challenging part, but it will start to come together so don’t worry! Everyone finds their own way. #OTalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
a) Not if it’s your name and address b) Not if it’s training and they have given you the certificate. The reason we block people’s name is for confidentiality. #otalk

#OTalk Question 11 Who’s responsibility is getting my CPD time? Mine or my employer?

A really good thought especially for students who hand in placement documents to their uni, but want to show how rich their experiences were!

@OTalk_ #OTalk having recently discussed with a colleague, who has been called for audit twice, as to the structure of how HCPC requires you to present CPD, does the format really matter or does a creative format help to motivate tracking CPD?

Incorporate the recording of CPD however sketchy in something you do each month, like supervision. You get into the habit of seeing so many more things as CPD opportunities #otalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@OTalk_ Maybe bring in OT models when you're writing your reflections, e.g. reflecting on how something you've learned fits in with the ideas of volition, habituation and performance capacity from the MOHO #OTalk
AshleyOT @AshleyN64
@BillWongOT @OTalk_ Great example! As occupational therapists we utilise and develop so many skills which can be used in practice. Learning from experiences which develop these are all valuable, therefore, acceptable for CPD recording! These are not always in tradition OT roles. #OTalk

@ciderwithsophie @Helen_OTUK @OTalk_ Thanks. I need to get back on track with this. I bought some art journal prompt books to have a go at doing a combo of art/bullet journalling in a diary. Often doodle etc in my planners. #otalk
