The Health Professions Council has asked me to pass on a reminder to speech and language therapists that the deadline date for registration renewal is Monday 30th September 2009.
It was a timely reminder for this registrant at least, and my renewal is now on its way.
Two and a half per cent of speech and language therapists are being audited this year to make sure they are meeting the HPC's standards for continuing professional development. HPC has made a DVD to help registrants understand the standards and prepare for audit. I certainly found the DVD helped me feel much less daunted by the prospect of being audited and very clear about what I would need to do if I was chosen.
If you have been selected for audit, you could think about making the most of the work you have put in by submitting some of your reflections for publication. Do get in touch if you would like to discuss this further.
