Earn CPD credits with MIMS

GPs can now use MIMS to earn credits toward appraisal and revalidation. Every issue features summaries of key clinical guidelines that are available for CPD activity, as defined by the RCGP and RCP.

GPs must demonstrate the learning achieved from each CPD activity and its relevance to their work.
GPs must demonstrate the learning achieved from each CPD activity and its relevance to their work.

The summaries cover national guidance from authoritative bodies including NICE, BTS/SIGN and JBS, on a range of topics including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, contraception, asthma and COPD. Each carries a suggested number of CPD credits, with one credit equal to one hour of CPD activity, including reflection and demonstration of the learning achieved.

GPs can earn more credit by showing the impact of the learning on their practice, either on the GP themselves, on their patients, or on the service they provide. A total of up to 18 credits is available in every issue of MIMS.

Each GP is expected to collect a minimum of 50 credits in a year and 250 credits over the five-year cycle of revalidation. Credits are self-assessed and verified by the GP’s appraiser at their annual appraisal meeting.

MIMS guideline summaries can be found in the yellow pages at the back of the book or online at www.mims.co.uk. To find out more about CPD and access your free CPD organiser, visit www.gponline.com/cpd.
