As you are aware, the HPCSA has indicated that they want to audit all its members for CPD/CEUs by the end of 2014. According to the HPCSA (2013), all healthcare practitioners have a responsibility to continually update their professional knowledge and skills for the end benefit of the patient or client. To this end the HPCSA has implemented a Continuing Professional Development programme. Every practitioner is required to accumulate 30 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per twelve-month period and five of the units must be on ethics, human rights and medical law. Each CEU will be valid for 24 months from the date on which the activity took place (or ended, in the event of post-graduate studies) after which it would lapse. This means that practitioners should aim to accumulate a balance of 60 CEUs by the end of their second year of practise, and thereafter top-up the balance through additional CPD as each 24 –month validity period expires.
With our continuous stride to provide our members with value added services, we are excited to announce that from April 2013, FULL SIOPSA MEMBERS will be able to complete FREE eCPD activities via AOSIS. With our new relationship with the service provider, Full SIOPSA Members will be able to complete eCPD/eCEU activities which totals 24 CEU/CPD points. AOSIS will provide the following eCPD activities to Full SIOPSA Members at no cost:
- 6 x 3 (Clinical) CEU/CPDs activities via SAJIP articles per year per member.
- 1 x 6 Ethics CEU/CPDs activities via SAJIP articles per year per member.
- This comes to 24 CEUs per member per year (which is only 6 CEUs short of what you require annually).
- The CPD certificates will be issued under the eCPD Healthcare Accreditation number.
