What are CPD credits versus hours?
The RCGP has developed a CPD credits system to help GP's across the UK to provide evidence of their learning for revalidation. One hour of education equates to one learning credit.
When you create a CPD entry with FourteenFish you then need to assign credits to it. The current guidance is that it is appropriate that the credits you allocate should equal however many hours you spent on learning activities, as long as they are demonstrated by a reflective note on lessons learned and any changes made or planned (if applicable).
Our Appraisal Summary will then reflect the number of credits allocated to any individual entry as well as providing you with Supporting Information Total Credits, one of these credits is equal to one hour of learning activity.
Further information is available surrounding this on the RCGP website.
