Writing a learning plan or CPD portfolio
Did you know that all registered optometrists need to write a learning plan, also known as a portfolio, at the start of every registration year?
Prior to undertaking CPD activities, you should identify and plan your own learning needs and the type of CPD activities to undertake, in order to meet those needs. For example, many identified learning needs may be met by a postgraduate course, while alternatively a single learning need may be met by multiple CPD activities.
