By the end of your three-year CPD cycle, you will need to have completed a Peer Discussion Review with a colleague, to enable you to reflect on your CPD and practice. This will normally take place towards the end of the cycle, although it could be undertaken early in Year 3 to allow time for any further CPD development if needed.
The Peer Discussion Review is a structured, formal discussion with a peer – an osteopath or another health professional, arranged for example within a regional group, an educational institution, a clinical interest group, or even by the General Osteopathic Council.
Within the Peer Discussion Review you will discuss your CPD and practice and show how this complies with the CPD requirements for osteopaths. It is important for the Peer Discussion Review to be conducted in a supportive way that emphasises and encourages engagement and enhances practice.
