Description

About the MedAll Primary Care CPD Programme

We are passionate about making medical education free and more accessible. In light of the increasing financial pressures faced by healthcare professionals, including the rising cost of living and strained practice finances, we felt compelled to do something. It's why we have introduced a no-cost CPD programme for doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals working in primary care. We recognise that the high expense of traditional CPD update courses is a significant barrier, and by collaborating as an entire primary care community we hope we can offer a practical, accessible alternative.

About our speaker: Dr Mavi Capanna MD

Dr Capanna is a psychiatrist working in London and a current Darzi Fellow. She has also held positions regionally and nationally in the BMA and HEE. She has an ongoing passion and drive to promote wellbeing and safe working for her colleagues and patients alongside tackling stigma around mental health. She has a special interest in forensic psychiatry and is committed to ensuring innovation in the workplace through whole-system thinking.

Note: this event is not formally accredited by an external organisation for CPD points. The current guidance for GP CPD is that it is appropriate that the credits you self-allocate should equal however many hours you spent on learning activities, as long as they are demonstrated by a reflective note on lessons learned and any changes made or planned (if applicable).
