D1- In this task I will evaluate the requirements for health care workers, in terms of them providing a competent workforce for the health sector, I will state what the continuing professional development (CPD) is and then how vital it is, I will also state how the importance of teamwork and the benefit it can be bring. What is the Continuing Professional Development (CPD)? CPD (Continuing Professional Development) is quite simply a means of supporting people in the workplace to understand more about the environment in which they work, the job they do and how to do it better. It is an ongoing process throughout our working lives.

Personal Attributes of Health Care Workers. Every health care worker need to have personal attributes such as honesty, patience, enthusiasm, responsibility, self-motivation/initiative and must really be a team player.

The weakness of this is that even though the guidelines are there not everyone will follow them. Conclusion Overall I think that CPD is a very good think as it does work since many workplaces apply these rules so that they can support their staff ad clients. CPD it very essential as it help employers and employees do they job better, I think that if every organisations as a CPD which they followed fully organisations would be a better, safe and pleasant place for every service user. CPD also shows employers and employees that working together could benefit not only them but also the organisation, as when working together as a team work chances are that more things are done and that service users are happy with the service they are getting which at the end will only be a good result for the organisation. ?? ?? ?? ??
