Appraisal for revalidation

Appraisal for revalidation is a 1-day group workshop that focuses on the nature and purpose of appraisal and how this links directly to revalidation.

During the day delegates will identify the supporting information and evidence that they will require for peer appraisal and have the opportunity to practise appraisal skills as well as analysing and developing effective strategies for some of the challenges which may present during appraisal.
