This document contains the full guidance for osteopaths on the GOsC CPD scheme requirements. The CPD scheme provides assurance of continuing fitness to practise for every osteopath on the Statutory Register, by encouraging osteopaths to develop their practice as members of a community of learning.
The CPD scheme is designed to promote engagement, professional support, discussion and ‘learning communities’ within osteopathy thereby ensuring high-quality patient care and patient safety. In this way, it puts patients at the heart of osteopathy.
Please note a temporary change in relation to page 14 of this document: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the process of verification and assurance has been put on hold. We will no longer be contacting a sample of osteopaths at the end of their CPD year for the time being. However, the requirement of the CPD scheme is to complete 90 hours of CPD over the three years of your cycle.
