HPCSA Individual Activity Record on which CPD activity can be recorded.
The Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) has committed to reconfiguring its Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme to ensure it addresses the ultimate objective of the philosophy of continuing professional development - 'the acquisition of new, current knowledge and measurable professional skills, with an end benefit to the patient or client'.
The HPCSA has resolved that all practitioners have to ensure that ethics and human rights CPD activities form an integral part of their CPD portfolio as from 1 January 2007.
CPD remains an ethical as well as statutory obligation – practitioners should keep proof of all activities attended (do not submit to the HPCSA). Continuing Education Units will have a shelf life of two years. The number of points to be collected per annum is 30 across all professions.
