Abstract:
This study sought to find out the relationship between Formal Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and Job satisfaction among Clinical officers in Nairobi County with respect to: Pay, Promotion, and Relationship with Co-workers, Supervision and Working Conditions. A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted involving 113 Clinical Officers. A self-administered structured questionnaire was designed using a 5-point Likert response format ranging from strongly disagree, disagree, neutral, agree and strongly agree to determine various levels and factors of job satisfaction that relate to the five (5) attributes: Pay, Promotion, Relation with Co-workers, Supervision and Working Conditions. The overall job satisfaction was higher in the group that had undergone formal CPD. The study however, demonstrated that there was no strong association between formal CPD and any of the five (5) domains. There is a need to relook into factors that contribute to dissatisfaction and those that increase levels of satisfaction at the workplace.
