New from CPD eLearning

CPD eLearning (formerly CPD Online) is a resource provided by the Royal College of Psychiatrists for mental health professionals, housed on our new eLearning Hub.

CPD eLearning offers a range of learning modules and podcasts that provide a flexible, interactive way of keeping up to date with progress in mental health. During the pandemic, there will be no limit on eLearning that can be counted for CPD; it will be possible for ALL 50 CREDITS to be obtained in this way. Access to the modules is through annual subscription, but we also offer a series of free modules and podcasts for you to trial first.

For more information, visit the CPD eLearning website.

BJPsych Advances and CPD eLearning work together to produce regular joint commissions to enhance learning for mental health professionals.
