MyCPD is a virtual portal for over 800 of Specsavers'
industry-leading optometrists to manage their
professional development and accreditation.

Featuring real-time visual reporting, CPD credit points,
resources and training, MyCPD enables Specsavers to
ensure compliance, deliver training and quantify
real-world outcomes.

Julia Farrell, Head of Professional Development,
Australia and New Zealand gave us insights
into how MyCPD has adapted and grown to
meet Specsavers' requirements.




"A good platform is an evolving and growing process and one that can adapt to your changes and requirements on an ongoing basis."

The challenge  

 

"We were seeking a CPD platform that could be used to assist our Optometrists to participate in a range of CPD activities to meet learning needs.

The CPD platform also needed to be a Risk Mitigation platform where Optometrists could manage their points/credit in Australia and New Zealand in line with each country's regulatory requirements.

All businesses are being forced to make decisions quickly. Now is an excellent time to implement a solution to meet immediate needs as well as future requirements."

Weighing the options

 

"Undertaking a scorecard approach with all vendor presentations to a Specsavers team of 10 it was identified that Powerhouse Hub had a very clear understanding of what we needed.

 

Their focus on data aligned well with our direction.

 

The platform covered everything that the business required with some identified customisation. Extremely easy to use."

The solution

 

"The CPD platform provides a repository of training and CPD courses for Australia and New Zealand.

It includes a visual dashboard of points/credit and status and the ability to record and track training outcomes and the accreditation of our Optometrists workforce for compliance – Australia (AHPRA) and NZ (ODOB)."

What advice would you give other businesses facing the same challenges?

 

"Be very clear in your needs, be open to looking at alternatives to meet these needs. Be prepared to start small and customize as you grow.

 

A good platform is an evolving and growing process and one that can adapt to your changes and requirements on an ongoing basis."
