CPD Self-Service Platform for Registered Practitioners
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) > COVID-19
Practitioners are encouraged to continue to participate in CPD activities that are relevant to the scope of their professions during the current COVID-19 pandemic. However, the HPCSA understands that practitioners may have difficulty meeting CPD requirements due to, among other things, the cancellation of conferences, CPD activities and changed priorities.
The HPCSA will therefore not act against practitioners who fail to submit their CPD portfolio and/or meet expected requirements while the pandemic persists. Further guidance in this regard will be provided to practitioners after the COVID-19 outbreak once has been brought under control.
The HPCSA is also taking an active stance against professionals who are found to be non-compliant with CPD audits. In this
new booklet on CPD guidelines.
have changed the awarding of Ethics CPD points from 2 points per hour to 1 point per hour. This essentially means that Health Professionals will need to make double the effort to ensure that they have sufficient CPD points per year
