Continuous Professional Development
"Continuing professional development (CPD) describes the systematic, ongoing structured process of learning that underpins professional practice. CPD enables physical therapists who have completed an entry level programme to maintain, develop and enhance their personal and professional skills, knowledge and behaviours, and ongoing competence to practise. This, in turn, advances practice, service delivery and ultimately outcomes for patients/clients. All physical therapists should participate in learning activities that maintain or increase their professional competence." World Physiotherapy
CPD is of crucial value and importance to society, the health care system, the patient/client, as well as to the profession and the individual physiotherapist.
Every physiotherapist in the Europe region must take responsibility for their own CPD
