CPD Guidelines for ASAIPA Members

The purpose of CPD is to assist health practitioners to maintain and acquire new and updated levels of knowledge, skills and ethical attitudes that will be of measurable benefit in professional practice. The aim is to enhance and promote professional integrity. The beneficiary will ultimately be the patient/ client.  All registered health practitioners are required to complete a series of accredited continuing education activities annually. The activities are clustered together to represent a hierarchy of learning. Health practitioners may select activities at any level of learning that meet their particular needs and the demands of their practice environments.

A health practitioner is required to engage in CPD and accumulate CEUs per twelve-month period of which a specific number of CEUs should be for ethics, human rights and health law. All CEUs are valid for a period of 24 months from the date that the activity took place/ ended

Practitioners may obtain their units within their own discipline, speciality, or sub-speciality or within another relevant discipline, speciality or sub-speciality.

HPCSA CPD certificates will no longer be issued to HPCSA professionals.  A template will be completed after each activity by the service provider of the event/activity and sent through to the HPCSA for capturing of points. The new process will then automatically upload the accredited CPD event/activity points to the HPCSA medical professional’s profile.
