TMR podcast: The CPD rat race

CPD podcast

Why are GPs so mad about the proposed changes to CPD?

If you’ve been following any of the news stories on CPD over the past few weeks, you might have noticed the rolling thread of angry comments from GPs.

Essentially, the medical board has decided to up the number of CPD hours to 50. And GPs feel like the sudden need for all this extra paperwork came out of nowhere.

The CPD proposal is giving some GPs a sinking feeling in their stomach – that feeling they’re just mice on those little wheels, running faster and faster to stay on the same spot.

TMR reporter Penny Durham is over all the details.
