The quality of care provided to patients is presumed to be related to lifelong learning. Continuous professional development (CPD) is therefore a requirement for all those who profess a commitment to competence. This chapter discusses the definitions of CPD, what lifelong learning should involve, how to undertake CPD, and obstacles to CPD.

Keywords:   healthcare quality, lifelong learning, continuous professional development, CPD, competence
