Chapter 11 has two main sections. First, it explores key factors influencing CPD – both the drivers for CPD and the theoretical or philosophical approaches that we believe underpin successful CPD – and through that it considers the future of medical CPD. The second part offers guidance on how doctors can best approach the planning of their CPD, going on to consider in detail how they can make good use of technologically supported approaches to learning (e-learning). Although the focus of this chapter is UK practice, the lessons are generalizable to doctors in most areas of the world.
