Continued Professional Development

The Journal of Orthodontics is pleased to provide the readership with the opportunity to obtain verifiable continuing profession development (CPD).

Each issue of the journal will contain one article identified as verifiable CPD (four per year).

After you have read the article, questions for this issue will appear in print (below) and online. You will be able to answer the questions online, and should your answers be correct, you will then be able to print a certificate for one hour of verifiable CPD, which you can use as evidence towards your requirements.

I hope that you find this service useful and I would welcome any feedback you might have about any aspects of the process, which is as follows:

All BOSmembers will receive email notification of their login details for the BOS Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

Users log in to the VLE and click on the BOS

Continuing Professional Development section.

Once in this section, there is a subsection called

Journal of Orthodontics Articles for CPD.

Within this subsection is a link to the article, an MCQ test and a link for the CPD certificate.

Clicking on the link to the article takes the user to the

Highwire platform and provides access to the online version of the article.

Once the user has read the article it is necessary to return to the BOS VLE to complete the MCQ test by clicking on the MCQ link.

The MCQ test must be completed and passed before clicking on the CPD certificate link to generate the certificate. It is possible to have two attempts at the MCQ test.

Once the certificate has been generated it can be printed or saved.
