Ensuring that our CPD is beneficial to all is a very important objective for us. As such, we have our own Clinical Governance Structure in place to maintain the quality of our CPD content:
Our content is written by our Head Content Creator who has a BSc (Hons) and is a HCPC full-time Paramedic and Clinical Governance Lead on their own department. All of the content, quizzes, and answers are stored in our database and referenced. This database is reviewed bi-annually to check for any new updates or changes to any guidelines.
Alongside this, we also have our MSc Paramedics and Senior Paramedics who also add content and spot-check the work, offering any suggestions or changes if needed. They work through different parts of the website, trying the content and reviewing the information.
Finally, our content is regularly tested on a group of Full-time Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians who review the content and advise how well they feel the questions are written, discuss any discrepancies with answers, and their overall feelings and benefits from the content.
We also have collaborated with the CPD Standards Office for the creation of several courses in production. The CPD Standards Office has a rigorous testing regime which they apply to ensure content reaches their standards. We apply the same level of governance for all of our content as we have done for our CPD Standards Office accredited courses.
Through having a stringent Clinical Governance Structure in place, it helps us maintain the high level of quality that our CPD can provide.
