Recording your CPD

Occupational Therapy Australia encourages you to keep a copy of your program and your receipt or name tag which will specify the days that you have registered to attend. Note the sessions that you attend when you count your CPD hours. 

Your attendance at this Conference WILL NOT be automatically recorded on your PD tracker on the Occupational Therapy Australia website. (Conferences are handled separately to CPD events on the website). You will need to do this manually by logging on to the website and going to PD> record new CPD tab.

You are required to keep a personal reflection record which encourages you to take some time to reflect on the implications of the session for your practice. An example of a reflection tool can be found here.

A certificate of Attendance will be issued to all conference attendees. This will be sent out via email after the Conference.
