The General Osteopathic Council
The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) is introducing a new CPD scheme for osteopaths in Autumn 2018. Over a three-year CPD cycle, osteopaths will need to undertake CPD across all themes of the Osteopathic Practice Standards, including at least one objective activity, and one CPD activity relating to communication and consent. You will also need to keep a CPD record and, with a colleague, complete a Peer Discussion Review.
Colleagues from the GOsC will be at the iO Convention to discuss any queries you may have, signposting you to any resources and documents to help you prepare for the new CPD scheme. Visit our stand to find out more.
