CPD articles

BACKGROUND

All hearing health care professionals, registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), are obligated to participate in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programmes and need to annually accumulate CPD points. The purpose of these programmes is to enable professionals to continually update their professional knowledge and skills which benefit the patient and/or client. One way to obtain CPD points is to read a CPD accredited article and complete a question paper afterwards.

*CPD articles are non-refundable. Take note of the expiry dates for each article and ensure that question papers are completed on time.
