Revalidation resources & templates

The GMC recognises that reflection has an integral role in learning and improving practice, and it is an important element of the annual appraisal and revalidation process. As part of the five-yearly revalidation cycle, the annual appraisal requires doctors to document their reflections to demonstrate insight into their work.

Revalidation & CPD Reflection Template
The RCR provides a revalidation reflective template, which can be used by clinical radiologists to help structure their reflections on all different types of activities and/or events required for appraisal and revalidation.

Two credits can be claimed for completing the template, one for reflecting on activities undertaken and one for the impact the activity has had on your professional practice.

Clinical radiology examples of reflection for appraisal and revalidation
The RCR guidance on reflection is provided through a series of examples of the revalidation template being used effectively by clinical radiologists to document reflections on all the different types of supporting information required by revalidation: CPD, quality improvement activity, significant events, patient and colleague feedback, and complaints and compliments.

These are intended for guidance only.  

We are working on providing examples to cover all of the areas required by revalidation. More examples should be available in due course.
