The slideshow presents some of the issues that face health professionals with regards to developing an ePortfolio. On the one hand, an ePortfolio is seen as a great tool for professional development. The barriers are uptake, digital literacy and confidentiality, to name but a few. My ePortfolio is embedded in my blog and wiki, but many health professionals are likely to be uncomfortable with this approach. Hopefully this slideshow will start some conversations about these issues.

  • Yes, that is definetly an advantage of having an open ePortfolio. I would hope that it would start up all sorts of discussions between practititoners and consumers. The only downside (depending on your point of view) is that a 'rate your midwife' situation may occur. Now, this may be fair enough but it could also turn nasty too. What do you think?

  • Hi Sarah, would prospective clients of a midwife have access to an eportfolio? It would possibly make choosing a midwife easier and more informed.

  • @easegill We haven't seen any evidence come out of New Zealand yet, but then again it's early days. What will be difficult for us to tease out is what affects practice: the portfolio or the Standards Review
