Interested in Ahpra CPD hours?
Refer to the Ahpra CPD registration standard and guidelines. This program aligns with Ahpra accreditation standards for CPD if the content/participation/reflective practice relates directly to your profession and scope of practice.
Each hour of your participation in this educational program relates to one hour of CPD (includes online participation in the monthly case study and your offline self-reflection). Please note the monthly online sessions meet the Ahpra definition for ‘CPD in an interactive setting with other practitioners’
In your CPD plan note:
- Date and time of the case study conferences you have attended and time spent in reflection activities.
- Log in details that were provided (Zoom meeting)
- Monthly Topic discussed and 3-4 key significant areas of knowledge acquired that maps to the following requirement of Ahpra i.e. ‘draws on the best available evidence, including well-established and accepted knowledge that is supported by research where possible, to inform good practice and decision-making’.
- You may also wish to download any of the provided resources.
Reflection: Update your CPD portfolios. Make notes of reflecting on acquired knowledge relative to evidence-based best practice, record how the knowledge gained is relevant to your practice and how you anticipate to apply this knowledge.
- It is recommended that you conduct a short clinical audit relative to the topic if possible to extend your learning (i.e. 1-2 patients per topic) and note (table form) relevant reflections:
- De-identified patient
- Significant history, diagnosis, management plan, identify any significant issues (person, familial, behavioural, clinical, other issues that impact on diagnosis, management and continuity of care)
