A PebblePad and ALTstrat Special Interest Symposium
A one day event jointly hosted by Pebble Learning and ALTSTRAT for those interested in exploring strategies for developing effective CPD management for busy health professionals.
The symposium features speakers from a range of institutions providing undergraduate health professional programmes as well as practice development and management teams supporting qualified staff to develop and maintain their CPD.
The presentations will highlight how PebblePad supports these processes and how ALTstrat's educational provision, consultancy, and Institutional Partnership with The University of Northampton can better enable NHS Trusts, Independent Healthcare Providers, and Higher Education Institutions to support staff development and revalidation.
The Symposium will be of interest to academics and practice teams supporting undergraduate education and also healthcare providers looking for ways to support their staff in CPD and appraisal processes. The event will also benefit those looking to support professionals who need to collate and present evidence to professional bodies for review and revalidation in Nursing and Midwifery and other Allied Health Professions.
The event will offer an opportunity to consider the practices of others and to reflect upon their applicability to the delegate's own context. Principally, this is an event for sharing interesting and innovative practice.
Places are limited to 50 to maximize participation and collaboration.
Any resources or outcomes of the symposium will be shared following the event.
This is a free event and lunch is provided so please book early as places are limited. Please note non-attendance will incur a charge of £50.
This event is not open to students.
