The College of Social Work publishes new CPD resource for Approved Mental Health Professionals [UK] – 23 September 2013

“The College of Social Work has published a new mapping tool to demonstrate how competencies required by social workers working as Approved Mental Health Professionals (AMHPs) meet professional development requirements for regulatory registration.

The tool is designed to enable social worker AMHPs to map their continuing professional development (CPD) targets within The College’s Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) to the standards of proficiency they need to meet for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

The PCF mapping document was devised by members of the AMHP leads network together with TCSW and its own AMHP community of interest.”

‘Effective governance to support medical revalidation’ is a handbook for Boards and governing bodies to help them assess if their organisations have strong enough systems in place to support quality patient care and revalidation.

The General Medical Council (GMC) developed the handbook in partnership with England’s Care Quality Commission, Monitor, Healthcare Improvement Scotland, Healthcare Inspectorate Wales, Northern Ireland’s Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority as well as the Government Procurement Service.

Revalidation – which this handbook is designed to support – is a new system of checks on doctors and was launched by the GMC in December 2012 to provide patients with greater confidence that UK doctors are keeping up to date and fit to practise.

Doctors need access to a regular appraisal focusing on the GMC’s professional standards and their organisation’s clinical governance systems to complete their revalidation. Organisations need these same systems to be working effectively to deliver safe and high quality care to patients.”
