Revalidation and you

Cornock, Marc (2016). Revalidation and you. Orthopaedic & Trauma Times(31) pp. 8–10.


This article is based upon a workshop presentation at the 2016 Orthopaedic & Trauma Alliance conference.

The aim of this article is to look at the principles of revalidation and consider what it means to those who have to revalidate. There are a number of factors that relate to revalidation and in order to discuss revalidation it is necessary to reflect upon the concept of competence as well as continuing professional development in professional health care practice.

The ways in which competence can be achieved will be discussed, as well as how continuing professional development can ensure that competence is maintained. There will also be discussion of how continuing professional development and revalidation are interlinked and that revalidation is essentially a method of ensuring and demonstrating competence.
