Reflection is a powerful learning tool. Submit your patient safety cases and earn CPD.

The College has recently reviewed and refreshed our patient safety bulletins, to improve the layout and content and bring a consistent format to all future bulletins.

Reflection is a valuable learning tool and constitutes high-quality CPD. The new bulletins are intended to provide you with opportunities to reflect on your own practices, as well as experiences of others, to draw out learning and development opportunities.

You can download the patient safety bulletins from our publications pages. You can also submit your own experiences as case studies. 

Share your knowledge and experiences and earn CPD

Help the College's patient safety work by sharing your knowledge and experiences with colleagues via a case study, the best of which will be publsihed as patient safety bulletins. If you send us your case studies, you may claim 1 CPD credit per case study and enter them in your online CPD portfolio.

We're looking for case study contributions from authors that reflect on something that has made an impact on patient safety. Your case study should describe patient care that went well or not so well, and why. We would also like to hear about:

  • how this was approached and resolved, either on an individual or team basis and/or by the wider system
  • what was learned 
  • how this was shared.

‘High or Low’ is a submitted case study which may be viewed by clicking the image to the top right.

We have provided a template for you to complete with details of your case study. You can submit your case study to the Professional Standards team via cpd@rcpath.org, and also enter it in your online CPD portfolio.

Please ensure that your employing organisation is aware of the incident.
