CPD Physiotherapy is an online resource that has been specifically designed by Sheffield Hallam University physiotherapy department to support physiotherapy graduates. It is a Blackboard site that houses a wealth of clinical and professional information. The site contains information on key clinical areas including Stroke, spinal cord injury, cardiac rehab, low back pain, exercise, management & leadership, The NHS and lots, lots more. Additional resources include a CPD toolkit, information on competency frameworks, PebblePad information and a wealth of employability resources. These monthly CPD packs are designed to help you structure your CPD, each pack contains clinical content, a short task, an article to review and a contribution to Physiopedia. CPD Physiotherapy also gives you 12 months access to the Library gateway; this will allow you to access eBooks, articles, journals etc wherever you are.
As part of this CPD project students will be tasked to make a monthly contribution to Physiopedia on the topic of the month. These contributions will direct thinking about the topic through review of current information that is available, review of the most recent literature available and a corresponding update of the Physiopedia article. This project will run for a year from July 2012 and we are very excited to be involved.
