e-Portfolio Forum 2010
On the 7th July Calibrand's Alexander Warwick presented a session at the e-Portfolio Forum at Savoy Place in London. The e-Portfolio Forum explored Medical Revalidation, a system in which doctors are required to demonstrate to the General Medical Council that they are up-to-date with their learning and development, and fit to practice medicine.
Medical revalidation using e-Portfolio provides rigorous proof, evidence and reassurance to many stakeholders, regarding medical practice. It also provides sound support to doctors in reflecting on their practice and helps to refresh and develop their skills and talents.
Revalidation also helps a small number of doctors improve on those areas where they need assistance to meet the standards of their peer group. This cements the trust that patients have in the medical profession.
