Chiropractors and stakeholders interested in workplace-based learning have met to discuss opportunities to link it to continuing development.
The Chiropractic Board of Australia (the Board) held a successful stakeholder forum in Melbourne on 28-29 July 2018.
The forum brought together registered chiropractors, education providers, accreditation authorities, professional associations and representatives from other health professions who share an interest in continuing professional development. It also attracted regulatory and professional representatives from New Zealand.
The forum included a mix of interactive presentations and small group activities encouraging participants to explore the application of best practice in workplace-based learning to a range of practice settings.
Participants were able to build on their understanding of workplace-based learning principles and consider how these may be applied to their own small group or solo practice.
Other topics explored included establishing peer-to-peer learning opportunities, development of identity as a lifelong learner and opportunities to link workplace-based learning experiences to continuing professional development.
Informative presentations were given by Australian and international experts.
A number of resources are now available for practitioners and interested stakeholders who were unable to attend the forum, including a highlights video from the event and videos of presentations.
