"Praise for the first editions... ...much more than the title suggests--this is knowledge....as close to the state-of-the-art as one can hope to come.... ...The balance between completeness and readability is quite well struck....the most useful results are available right there in the book." ---Tappi Journal, 1985
CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain and develop knowledge, problem-solving, and technical skills with the aim to provide better health care through higher standards. It could be through conference attendance, group discussion or directed reading to name just a few examples.
