CPD study presented to Health Ministries

On 24 November 2014, CED's Nina Bernot and Sara Roda attended the meeting of the Commission-led Working Group on European Workforce for Health. The meeting was an opportunity for the consortium that authored the study on continuous professional decelopment (CPD) for health professionals in the EU to present the study to representatives of Ministries of Health.  

The CPD study was carried out by European associations representing dentists (CED), doctors (CPME), nurses (EFN), midwives (EMA) and pharmacists (PGEU), supported by EPHA and was commissioned by the European Commission. Besides a review of CPD systems by profession and by country, the study analyses the barriers to successful uptake of CPD and puts forward a number of suggestions for future cooperation on CPD at EU level.

Representatives of Health Ministries showed a great deal of interest in the study and supported further discussions with health professionals on CPD. A subgroup of the WG on European Workforce for Health is expected to be established and to start meeting in 2015.
