Lessons for Leadership: Improving Patient Care Through High-Quality PDPs

AUTHOR and Collaborators: DR SARAH BURNS, Dr Susi Caesar, Dr Karen Gregory

How powerful can PDPs be? Do they have an impact on personal professional development, quality improvement or patient care? Does training in PDPs make them more likely to be powerful? Surprisingly there is very little research around any of this, and this is what I set out to look at.

Please see the links below for more information about my pilot project, which has been presented at the FMLM conference and a national RCGP webinar.

My findings have contributed to a new PDP template with better questions that should help you set PDP goals that are both meaningful and useful. I am currently expanding my project to look in more depth at the real-world impact of PDPs and will publish the findings here once available.
