Get Started

Over a three-year CPD cycle, osteopaths will need to undertake CPD across all themes of the Osteopathic Practice Standards, including at least one objective activity, and one CPD activity relating to communication and consent. You will also need to keep a CPD record and, with a colleague, complete a Peer Discussion Review.


The Osteopathic Practice Standards underpin all aspects of practice and should be reflected in your CPD.
