This report outlines the findings and recommendations of the Department of Health (DH) commissioned review undertaken by University College London and an expert reference group during 2012-13.

The review examined the PWP curriculum and associated materials in order to update and revise them as appropriate. There were a number of reasons for commissioning the review, including developments in the evidence base, the need to refine the assessment process, the changing demands on IAPT services, new roles emerging with IAPT services and the need for a better integration of PWP course accreditation and the national curriculum, in particular the assessment of trainee competence. Full details of the review are available from the UCL website
