Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a mandatory requirement of the Health and Care Professions Council and has been embraced by the College of Occupational Therapists. In order to make the most of CPD, it is important for individuals and organisations to have a process which guides both activity and dissemination. The TRAMM (Talk, Record, Action, Mentor and Measure) Model aims to provide a framework to guide both individuals and organisations and enable them to maximize the potential of CPD (Morris et al 2011 and 2012, Polglase 2012). Initial feedback from potential users of the model was invaluable in helping to refine the components and it has continued to develop since its inception. In 2010 The TRAMM Tracker was developed to assist in the recording and monitoring of activities. During 2012 the Model has been piloted within NHS, Local Authority and Education sectors across the UK for use by occupational therapists, assistants and students. The first evaluation will be complete by March 2013 with required amendments made by May 2013. Once the Model and Tracker are fully developed there is the potential for it to be utilised by other Health and Social Care professionals. This seminar aims to allow participants to explore the potential application of the TRAMM Model and Tracker, which has been updated following the pilot. A short overview of the model will be given followed by opportunities for practice using the tools available. Opportunity for feedback and discussion regarding its future research and development will conclude the session.
