Revalidation update and the new CPD matrix AAGBI Congress Edinburgh 20111Revalidation: Why?
Before starting, it is worth recalling why revalidation was demanded AND how long it has taken us to get to where we are today.
Indeed the GMC were a long way towards producing guidance on the requirements for revalidation when Dame Janet Smiths was asked to review the Shipman case and this torpedoed their efforts and it had to start again. Her 5th Report Safeguarding Patients: Lessons from the Past Proposals for the Future wasnt published until Dec 2004 - this when the impetus for Reval recommenced once again and the CMOs report was published following this.
We are still some way off the implementation of a revalidation process. Personally I believe that, whilst recognizing that it is essential that we have a workable system in place, it is essential that we do not delay further2Revalidation update and the CPD matrix What is revalidation?Medical appraisalSupporting InformationContinuing professional development and the matrixWhat should you be doing now?So what am I going to cover3What is Revalidation?A new process to assure patients, the public, employers and other healthcare practitioners that licensed doctors are up to date and fit to practise.

Appraisal for revalidation Whole practice referenced to four domains of GMPJudgements on:Adequacy of supporting information including:CPDQuality of practiceLearning from complaintsMSFClinical risks/safetyProgress towards revalidationMatch job plan to Trust needsPDP taking account of the aboveThe areas in Bold/Italics identify the major additions.Important points to stress are the Judgements, especially around adequacy of supporting information, clinical risk/safety issues and ability to assess overall progress towards revalidation 11GMC Good Medical Practice Framework
www.gmc-uk.org/GMP_framework_for_appraisal_and_revalidation.pdf_41326960.pdfGood Medical Practice FrameworkMust be used by individual doctors to:
Reflect on practice/approach to medicineReflect on Supporting Information and what it demonstratesIdentify areas for improvement/further developmentDemonstrate they are up to date and fit to practise
You should use the Framework to:reflect on your practice and your approach to medicinereflect on the supporting information you have gathered and what that information demonstrates about your practiceidentify areas of practice where you could make improvements or could undertake further developmentdemonstrate that you are up to date and fit to practise

www.rcoa.ac.uk/docs/CPD_2010.pdfCPD Matrix (Clinical)Three levels:
Level OneRestricted area of essential knowledgeLevel Two (Knowledge and skills)Directly related to on-call activityLevel Three (Knowledge and skills)Directly related to special interest clinical activitywww.rcoa.ac.uk/docs/CPD_2010.pdf
THE CONCEPT OF THREE LEVELS is retained, though it looks very different from the original plan Note this is different from other specialties they only have Two Levels. Because of what we cover on call.Level Two:Unit specificDirectly related to on-call commitments not in job-planned service deliveryAble to rescue a colleague in difficultyAble to provide anaesthesia for patients too complex for more inexperienced colleaguesTherefore knowledge and skills
Level Three:ExpertiseState-of-the-art skills and knowledgeAble to support consultant colleagues with their most complex casesUsually accessible from specialist society meetings
22(New) CPD Matrix: level one (L1)Level 1 covers the core knowledge areas expected of all those who have trained as anaesthetists. The CPD evidence for this level will be largely internal and may be obtained from reviews/reflection of personal clinical practice utilising records of clinical activity, e-learning material, reading and local hospital departmental meetings. Final sentence in the preamble states: Every item included in this level of the matrix must be completed in each Revalidation cycle (there are 30 in total, which equates to 6 per year, although some may be included in local mandatory requirements more frequently).23(New) CPD Matrix: level one (L1)A.

The CPD evidence for this level may be provided, in part, by updates from local experts but it will also include the need for more external CPD activity through attendance at courses and meetings.Final sentence in the preamble states: Every item included in this level of the matrix must be completed in each Revalidation cycle (there are 30 in total, which equates to 6 per year, although some may be included in local mandatory requirements more frequently)
