'Appraisal for revalidation' workshop and e-learning

Appraisal is a key part of the revalidation process, and this appraisal for revalidation workshop will meet the needs of consultants and SAS doctors who are taking part in the appraisal process, either as appraisers or appraisees.

What will you learn?

This one-day workshop focuses on the nature and purpose of appraisal and how this links directly to revalidation. Delegates will identify the supporting information and evidence that they will require for peer appraisal and have the opportunity to practise appraisal skills. Delegates will also analyse and develop effective strategies for some of the challenges which may present during appraisal.

By the end of this workshop, doctors will be able to:

  • understand the nature and purpose of appraisal and the link with revalidation
  • provide feedback in ways in which a colleague can accept, and can act upon
  • help colleagues develop strategies and targets for continuing professional development

I feel more confident in supporting training for appraisers and appraisees in the future. It has empowered me more as an appraise
