Domain 1: Review of last year's Learning

Review of last year's Personal Development Plan (PDP)

In this section you should provide supporting information (and reflections) that confirms you have met the needs identified in your previous PDP as agreed at last year's appraisal (documented on Form 4). You should reflect on the level to which the objectives have been met and how you met them; and where applicable, the reasons why you have not undertaken a proposed activity. If your objective was not completely met you should consider whether this should or could be addressed in more depth, or whether you should continue with it.

The supporting information that you provide will depend upon what your learning objective was.  For example, a certificate of attendance at an ALS course would demonstrate that you had met a need to update ALS skills; or inclusion of a practice protocol for management of a collapsed patient would demonstrate that you had met a need for developing a system within your practice for coping with this clinical scenario.

Reflection of your learning as supporting information is equally important.  On SOAR, there are comments boxes on appropriate sections of the appraisal forms to record this; or you can use the reflective templates provided.

Other Learning Activities

If you completed any educational activities not originally included in your PDP, you should provide appropriate supporting information and reflections in this section also. This can include certificates of attendance (courses provided by accredited providers), details of practice or personal protocols, management plans, or guidelines.  Consider how the knowledge / skills / attitudes learned may be implemented, or what further learning is required.
