CPD is an ongoing process. It is a systematic reflection on the entire medical decision-making process, with multiple methods appropriate to each physician. Implementation and evaluation are the responsibility of everyone, with intense collective exchanges between peers. The DPC meets a societal demand, expressed in France by law HPST. This requirement is not inconsistent with the foregoing. It must not place unnecessary procedures induce them, even infantilizing and sterilizing. More than a hypothetical “better practices”, it is looking for quality and safety of care. Beyond words opposed design guilt, injustified, and a positive outlook, only promising future.
