The RCVS will run a social media campaign next month to address uncertainties surrounding the type of activities that can be counted towards CPD for vets and veterinary nurses.

The #mykindofCPD campaign will consist of daily posts on the college’s social media channels.

RCVS director of education Christine Warman said: “The education department often receives queries from both vets and veterinary nurses about what can be counted towards their CPD, as well as concerns about the costs involved or the time they may have to spend away from practice.

“We hope this campaign will help demonstrate the many different activities that can count as CPD, including non-clinical training in areas such as management, mentoring and communications.”

Daily posts

The campaign will consist of daily posts on the college’s social media channels with examples from veterinary nurses and vets – including members of RCVS council, VN council and advanced practitioners – of CPD they have engaged in and that has had a tangible impact on their practice.

All posts will include the hashtag #mykindofCPD and the college will encourage followers to share their own experiences with the same hashtag.

More information about CPD can be found on the RCVS website’s vet CPD and VN CPD pages.
