Continuing Professional Development

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. It is a programme designed to assist professionals in developing their academic and professional skills beyond their initial training, on an ongoing basis. The CPD process includes the recording and evaluation of each professional’s learning and development, which is reported to and monitored by the governing body such as SAMA.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a process of learning designed to ensure professionals maintain their knowledge and keep their skills up to date so that they can provide a service of the highest quality, to the community in which they serve.

 

Most governing bodies have made the CPD process compulsory, and some are even conditional to the renewal of the professional’s practising license. The purpose of the programme is to safeguard the public, the employer and the professionals themselves, by ensuring that their knowledge is current and up-to-date with the latest developments in their field. It also enables clinicians to provide the best professional service to the public, which they are licensed to serve.

 

The compliance requirements differ vastly from one professional governing body to another. For example, the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) requires healthcare providers to acquire 30 CPD General points and 6 Ethics points every two years.

 CPD BENEFITS

CPD benefits professionals in the following way:


  • Keeps their knowledge current and up to date
  • Enables clinicians to provide a better service to their patients
  • Upgrades professional credentials
  • Enhances a clinician's CV, which can open favourable employment opportunities
  • Demonstrates professional standing and compliance
