Action This part of the CPD process is about implementing plans that have been selected during the planning stage.
Once the planned activity has taken place, it is time to move on to the evaluation stage. I followed this suggestion and have introduced the new programme of working hours.
Generally the new system has worked well and this has encouraged me to look more closely at staff working hours. Increased Saturday working has been particularly unpopular and I feel that I need further development of my management skills to be able to carry through this change successfully.
The learning is unscheduled or opportunistic as it was not a planned piece of CPD. This type of learning starts with action and moves on to the evaluation of what was learnt. James notes the importance of this advice in achieving a successful long-term outcome for the patient. James starts to develop a series of additional advice protocols for use within the pharmacy team when speaking to patients with fungal infections.
The format is the same in either case and copies of exemplar record sheets can be seen on the Plan and Record website. Electronic recording of CPD is the preferred option as there is easy access to additional information at the time of entering the online record.
The web-based record is also more secure than a paper version which could be mislaid or destroyed. Current guidance is that it should take approximately 30 minutes to record one CPD entry and approximately one entry should be made each month. The pharmacist may choose to engage in much more CPD than this, depending on their personal circumstances and development needs.
The aim of CPD recording is to produce a portfolio of good-quality entries. Ultimately the individual CPD programme is driven by and linked closely to individual personal development planning.
Personal development planning CPD that is unplanned and spontaneous is unlikely to bring about the maximum return in terms of your investment of time and effort. A PDP is essentially a plan of action. A well constructed PDP takes a more global view of where the pharmacist is heading and what they would like to achieve along the way.

Different formats can be used for a PDP. Alternatively, the pharmacist may prefer to use a different format or construct their own PDP.
The following stages are required to produce a PDP. Where am I now? Where do I want to be? This is a very personal question and there will be many variables to consider in formulating your answer.
The questions listed below may help to answer the question. It will be necessary to ask many other questions to formulate an answer to this question. How can I get there?
A quick search of the Internet on any given topic will often result in links to thousands of web sites, which can easily overwhelm the information seeker. Having access to a variety of quality resources and knowing how and when to use them will result in a confident researcher who can find useful information. The best sources of information are those that provide highly relevant and valid information but do not require a lot of effort to use.
This knowledge should, in turn, assist preceptors in providing students with opportunities to practice and refine their own drug and health information retrieval skills which were acquired during the didactic portion of the PharmD curriculum. Some of the more common types of inquiries encountered in this setting include adverse effects, dosage and administration, drug interactions, pharmacotherapy, and disease state information relating to prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and dietary supplements.
Information resources are broken down into 3 different categories of literature: primary, secondary, and tertiary and each of these categories serve a specific purpose in the information retrieval process. Primary literature is considered the base or foundation for the rest of the literature, secondary literature connects the information seeker to the primary literature and tertiary literature serves as the core body of knowledge developed by synthesizing the information gained from the primary literature.
The decision of which resource to use is often based upon availability, personal preference, and the level of detail needed to provide a complete answer.
As the scope and focus of these resources can vary, when possible, it is a good idea to consult multiple resources to validate an answer. If the information found in the tertiary resources is not sufficient, the next option would be to consult the primary literature for more specific and current information.
Journal articles reporting the results of clinical trials, which are accessible by searching secondary literature resources, make up the bulk of primary literature used to answer drug information questions. Case studies and exercises in each chapter include structured questions, which encourage the reader to consolidate the information provided and apply their knowledge to a typical community pharmacy scenario.
