CORU and CPD
Since March 2015, the title 'occupational therapist' is a protected one. Occupational therapists are required to be CORU registered in order to practice. Registrants are required under the CORU Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics to enage in CPD, maintain professional knowledge and skills, maintain accurate CPD records and practice in areas of professional competence. Responsible practitioners engage in CPD as a means to keep their qualification up to date and to ensure the delivery of safe and effective services for the benefit of their patients and service users.
CPD is not limited to formal learning activities such as conferences or courses. CPD includes a diverse range of activities which may be formal; such as courses or informal activities, for example journal reviews, debriefing and case reviews. Both AOTI and CORU encourage occupational therapists to engage in a broad range of CPD activities.
