TRIP has been interested in education for a while and the new site saw a new feature added ‘Use as CPD’. This allows a user to view an article in ‘CPD mode’; this results in the article being opened with a top bar with 3 questions:

  • Why am I exploring this area?
  • What have I learned?
  • How will I change my behaviour?

See image below to help understand what we do!

The idea is that health professionals record their reflections on the paper and this is then stored in their educational eportfolio.

As with many innovations things started slowly but I’m now delighted to report that it’s being used heavily and it’s looking great.

What interests me is the middle questions ‘What have I learned’, wouldn’t it be great if this learning could be shared?
