Nurses, can you spare a moment to tell me about CPD?

Hi - I have to do a presentation as part of my course and would like to make it a presentation for nurses that they could use as part of their CPD. But it's only 10 minutes - would that be too short to record as Prep time? Is there anything i would need to do, like give them a signed record of it?

Not sure that 10 minutes would count towards tbh.

What in particular do you want to know?

could you do a workbook type thing to go with the presentation. say that the research and answering the book could take 3 hours or something. then the presentation could cover the main points and answer the questions.

and a nice certificate for the ol portfolio always goes down well.

Thank you both. Yes, I was afraid that 10 minutes wasn't much use - I thought I'd seen articles in Nursing Times measured in minutes to read etc, but probably at least 30. The workbook idea is a great one YuleLogLady, I'll have a go at something like that.
