If your looking for a way to gain full access to many of the physiotherapy related journals then look no further! CPD Anywhere from Sheffield Hallam University in the UK provides you with just that, and much more!
It is important these days is to keep up to date with new evidence and continue professionally developing and indeed many registration bodies require that we evidence our learning for continued registration. For many practitioners time constraints and lack of funding can make it difficult to honour these requirements. So what is the answer? Sheffield Hallam University in the UK have come up with a novel and innovative way to keep on learning, keep up to date with new evidence and keep a record of professional development. CPD Anywhere is an online opportunity that opens up learning resources, library access and use of a CPD portfolio. This online learning opportunity is open to anyone anywhere!
CPD Anywhere is a dedicated virtual learning environment (VLE) providing interactive information, resource and support, together with an e-portfolio platform called PebblePAD, which is both intuitive and simple to use.
- Learning resources developed at the University are made available for users to view.
- PebblePAD, an e-portfolio system, can be used to document and record your learning and evidence of CPD, in a form and format to suit you.
- Library access is included making all the SHU library materials available to view online, including all the major journals.
- Included is the option to undertake a dedicated module ‘Evidencing your CPD’ which will allow you to gain Masters level credits for this activity and produce a profile or portfolio of evidence as required in your area of practice.
The included library access is a great opportunity for people who don’t otherwise have access to journals to have cheap access to new research evidence. This is of particular to those in independent or private practice and those in less resourced countries.
To enroll, you pay a one off fee of £99 for 12 months unlimited access to CPD VLE and PebblePAD. This enables you to access, view, download and utilise materials and resources from the site, for updating, refreshing your knowledge, or to help evidence your learning and development for CPD, at a time and pace to suit you. At the end of 12 months, you have the option of renewing your registration.
