Right. My cpd23 six-word story is definitely: "shouldn't have taken me so long". But, at long last, I'm up to the last thing: looking forward.
Having some sort Professional Development Plan is definitely a good idea. I've yet to work out how best to manage it for myself. I don't really like the PPDP format used in Chartership, although that's maybe because the whole Chartership procedure feels artificial to me. I do know that I'll be needing a plan seeing as I'm starting a new job soon. But I can't really do much on it until I have my feet under the desk. I do already know that an improved knowledge of RDA and of the history of medicine are needed. The former I'm addressing by watching this webinar, the latter by watching #histmed tweets.
I'll set myself a target to have a plan written by the end of January. That will give me a little time to work out what it is I need to know.
