SMART PDP entries
You are expected to log > 2 PDP entries per year (at least 1 will be generated at each of your Educational Supervision meetings in December and May). They should identify important broad learning needs which require a range of actions to address them. The SMART model was developed by psychologists as a tool to help people set and reach their goals. It’s a simple approach that lends itself to creating good PDP entries in your e-portfolio.

Don't forget personal indeminity cover in your hospital posts

Your employing Trust provides cover for clinical negligence problems arising during your work within your training programme. That cover does NOT extend to advising you with disciplinary issues,  dealing with referrals to the General Medical Council, providing personal representation at a Coroner’s inquest if needed, and the multitude of other things that can go wrong unexpectedly.  Like any other kind of insurance, seeking retrospective cover is not an option. Please also be aware that Trust legal representatives will be acting to limit the liability to the organisation, your medical reputation will not be a primary concern. However a Defence Society will be acting on YOUR behalf and seeking, where appropriate, to highlight any organisational issues that may have contributed to the incident you were involved with.
