Letters to the Editor


Examples give rise to concerns

From Mr J. A. Tweed, MRPharmS

I find little support among my colleagues and friends for continuing professional development, as set out by officers of the Society. The examples given by some members (PJ, 30 August, p262) give rise to some concerns. In particular the example from Dr Dewdney raises questions:

1.How will “Auto-numbering” help members of the Society or our patients?

2.Did he look at the “Help” menu in “Word” which gives instructions on using “Auto-numbering”?

3. With what will he fill the remaining 29 hours and 45 minutes of the year’s CPD?

4.Who will police CPD, especially within the offices at Lambeth?

No doubt Dr Dewdney will attempt to justify the example as suitable CPD, but I am of the opinion that his efforts would be better focused elsewhere.

We do need to keep up to date in our education and knowledge but, I submit, this is not the way to proceed.

I cannot be alone in holding these views.

J. A. Tweed
