ConsultUS(Pty) Ltd introduced the Consult|CPD programme for psychologists in January 2019 and the programme is aimed at psychologists and other health professionals.
Your Consult|CPD team is constantly looking for new and creative ways to be an even better service provider. We are therefore introducing live webinars on hot topics for the year 2021. This module will be accredited for a further 16 CPD points and can be attended either on the day of live streaming or you can watch the recordings at a convenient time from the comfort of your home/office.
Our commitment is to offer mental health practitioners a one stop shop for lifelong learning through the Consult|CPD platform which offers the option of acquiring up to 46 CEU’s per year (including up to 11 units for ethics, human rights and medical law), depending on the modules selected.
The ethical practice of the health professions requires consistent and ongoing commitment to lifelong learning by all health practitioners through the process of Continuous Professional Development (CPD). CPD should address the emerging health needs and be relevant to the health priorities of the country. The document containing the updated CPD guidelines for health professions can be accessed on the HPCSA website (click here).
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.
Health practitioners who are registered in two different professions or categories must meet the requirements of the boards that are applicable. Health practitioners registered in more than one category within the same professional board should accrue thirty (30) CEUs per profession with the five (5) CEUs for ethics, human rights and health law per twelve-month period applicable to both professions.
The Consult|CPD program exceeds the minimum number of points required on an annual basis and is perfect for those clients who needs to catch up on points.
Practitioners may obtain their units within their own discipline, speciality or sub-speciality or within another relevant discipline, speciality or sub-speciality.
Practitioners are responsible for updating their own portfolios until their names are drawn for a compliance audit. In order to assist them in this regard, ConsultCPD issues a CEU Certificate to participants who successfully complete the programme, and also keeps record of the units earned by each participant for a period of three years after the date on which the certificate was issued.
