How widely used is this website?
CPD for medical doctors
The Royal College of Radiologists has confirmed that as the MSK online course has been endorsed by the College of Radiographers, additional accreditation from the RCR is not required:
"1.5 Reciprocity: Because of the wide range and variety of medical practice it is recognised that doctors working in one specialty may find it helpful to undertake CPD activities that are more usually appropriate for a different specialty. To facilitate this, a CPD activity approved by one College or Faculty may be accepted as part of the CPD for a doctor from a different College or Faculty without the need for a second accreditation process."
CPD credits
Guidance for allocating CPD credits is provided by the Royal College of Radiologists' document Continuing professional development (CPD) scheme (Third edition). In this, it states that "Distance learning from accredited online courses, events, meetings, lectures and educational activities" should be allocated at one credit per hour. One additional credit for reflection, and a further credit for documenting impact of the activity on clinical care can also be claimed.
