In recognition of the educational value of creating and sharing a clinical case, MedShr cases that meet four key criteria will be awarded CPD credits starting 1st August 2018.
We are working in partnership with CPD UK, and for high quality cases, meeting core requirements for professional development, the MedShr member who created the case will receive 30 minutes of CPD credits.
The CPD accreditation framework for MedShr cases
MedShr CPD accreditation has a simple framework, with credits awarded if a case meets the following criteria:
- Clinical case addresses a specific aspect of clinical practice or engages members in discussion on a topic within clinical practice
- Sufficient clinical information in the case description that may be supported by case images or videos to allow members to understand the context
- At least one specific question or discussion point
- Evidence that the case creator has reflected or engaged in discussion on the clinical issues raised
In order for your case to be eligible for accreditation, all you need to do is select the ‘Request CPD accreditation for creating this case’ option before you publish your MedShr case.
Once your case has been reviewed and accepted, you can export your accredited case as a PDF for your records, as shown below.
