Contribute to CPD Online

New commissions

CPD Online relies on psychiatrists and educationalists in the field to contribute material for online learning.
Have you recently given a seminar or been involved in a workshop where
you have produced educational material? 
Perhaps you wrote an article for a College journal and would like to rework
the content in the form of an online module?
Do you have a special interest in new technology and would you like to
be more creative with your work presentations?
Whatever the circumstances, we are keen to hear your ideas.


If you have a module proposal that you would be interested in authoring yourself, the College will pay £200 for each learning module approved by our CPD Online Editor. You can also claim CPD credits for the work.

When submitting your module idea, please include:


  • a working title and several learning objectives   
  • section headings and brief notes on content   
  • peer reviewer recommendations 
  • a brief CV detailing your work and writing experience.

Submit your ideaOnce your proposal has been approved by our Editor, we will send you a contract to sign before you commence your writing.


Before you submit a proposal, please take a look at our published and commissioned modules to see whether we have already covered the topic.


We are always interested in receiving module suggestions; if you have any topic ideas but you are not interested in writing the modules yourself, please share them with us!

You could also gain a CPD Online certificate by reading the CPD Online module Author guidelines.



Call for authors

Modules in need of updating


Call for authorsOur Module updates programme continues to go well, with around two-thirds of our 223 live modules having been updated/reviewed or newly published in the last 2 years.


We ask our authors to review and update their modules regularly to ensure they offer the most up-to-date learning, but sometimes this is not possible and we need to find new authors for older modules in need of attention.


Some modules currently up for review and need of new authors include the following:



If you think you could help to review and update any of the material in these modules please do get in touch. We would love to see these updated in the near future and add to the programme's success!
