The busy month started with a day at the Countess of Chester Hospital where I met the most amazing group of dietitians from different specialisms and finished with a day at the Association for Nutrition Regional Networking Meeting in Manchester, where I met some really lovely people all very enthusiastic about their dissertations and PHD’s.
CPD is defined by the Health Care Professions Council (2014) as:
- “the way professionals continue to learn and develop throughout their careers so they keep their skills and knowledge up to date and are able to work safely, legally and effectively”
I also managed to deliver a presentation for my Personal Career Development Module, spent a day job shadowing at Public Health England and submitted my application to Chester University for a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics. Phew!!
December is a bit quieter, I’m attending the Edge Hill Scholarship Awards on Friday and then off to London again for the Nutrition Society Winter Meeting. Val
