The Nursing & Midwifery Council revalidation is a requirement that can be met in part through the use of Seven Songs for a Long Life.
Tips on Continuous Professional Development (CDP) and Nurse Revalidation
It is necessary for registered nurses to fulfill the requirements for revalidation on Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) register. The Seven Songs for a Long Life film and educational pack can play a part in this by nurses considering the impact on their CPD of a Seven Songs screening or working through the educational materials. For example, the NMC requires nurses in the three-year period since their last renewal to:
Complete and log 35 hours of learning on the NMC template (of which 20 must be participatory)
– think about logging the screenings and being shown how to facilitate a post screening workshop/discussion.
Obtain five pieces of practice-related feedback
– think about obtaining feedback about how you facilitated a screening or the impact of it on your practice.
Complete five written reflective accounts on the NMC template
– think about reflecting on facilitating a screening or working your way through the educational materials and the impact this had had on your practice.
All of this must relate to the NMC code.
