How important is this for getting a job?? I am very lazy with mine and don't know what to include /exlude. I read MANY research papers per week, clinical updates, journal updates etc. All the new nutrition company info that gets sent to me. Where to start/stop???

Exactly, for the sake of a tenner the time it has saved me it has proved very worthwhile.
I think the key thing with regard to an interview folder is to select pieces of evidence that you are confident in talking about..... something you are familiar with and can talk confidently about in order to 'sell yourself'.....ie something you know inside out and not something you will umm and arr over. Perhaps take bits of evidence along that is of particular relevance to the position you are applying for that is biased towards the type of work you will be doing?

Thanks Claire. Pity to pay for it, but i'd say it halves the workload. Again, I just don't know where to start/stop. I have read several papers this week [well, as you do, "read/skimmed through"], written 2 documents on different subjects for reference for my workplace. But this is a contsant ongoing thing, too many to ever include unless i arrive at my interviews with a wheelbarrow of cpd notes.
I think I just have to stop being lazy and making excuses for not doing my folder!

I am a long time lurker on here but this is my first post.
A decent CPD record is essential at interview but more importantly to maintain your registration with the HPC. No registration = no job!
The best thing you can do is use an online system and the best out there (which I have used for the last two years) is www.cpd-online.com because it addresses the HPC CPD standards directly and lets you upload evidence...... you can then just print it out for your interview folder if needs be.
Hope this helps
