About this Course:
A Psychological assessment is a process-orientated activity aimed at gathering a wide array of information by using assessment measures, and information from different domains and sources. The goal is to evaluate and integrate all this information to reach a conclusion and provide recommendations in the form of a written report
The quality of the report says a great deal about you as a professional. If technical aspects of your writing are not perfect, people reading your report, will not only doubt your writing abilities but will also question your other skills. In this CPD webinar the assessment procedures and technical aspects of professional report writing will be discussed. This includes the intake interview, the assessment procedures, the HPCSA ethical considerations, multi-dimensional assessment procedures, professional writing style, and reporting the results. Finally, guidelines for online assessments will be explored.
Important information: Changes to the HPCSA CPD Submission process
All CPD service providers received this notification last week –
“From the 1st of Feb 2022, CPD certificates for HPCSA delegates will not longer be needed / issued.
Service providers are required to complete a template after each activity and this will be sent through to the HPCSA by the service providers. The HPCSA will then capture the points on behalf of the delegates.
This new process will automatically upload the accredited CPD event/activity points to the HPCSA professional’s profile.
As I am sure you can imagine, this new process will have some teething problems. This process does alleviate the burden on the professionals to keep track of the CPD points and certificates and allows for automatic update of the CPD points directly to the HPCSA. This process further removes all administrative burdens from the health professionals and places all the administrative burdens on the service provider providing the CPD activity.
All discrepancies regarding points needs to be discussed with the service providers.
All service providers need to submit this information to the HPCSA “immediately” after a CPD event. In the case online activities with a MCQ component, the suggestion was that such information be submitted to the HPCSA once a month.”
