Accredited for 5 Ethics CPD points (Psychology)
Courses expires 31st of December 2022
Description of the Ethics course
With a special focus on practicing ethically using Tele-Psychology and providing signed informed consent agreements
The HPCSA regularly investigate psychologists’ for breaching the ethical code of conduct. The HPCSA is required to investigate each complaint. It is the onus of the psychologist to prove his/her innocence. This process is a stressful, and lonely ordeal, where your livelihood and reputation is at stake. Furthermore, your legal costs are also your responsibility. Therefore, it is essential, for a psychologist to fully comprehend Form 223 of the HPCSA.
Changes to the HPCSA CPD Submission process
From the 1st of Feb 2022, CPD certificates for HPCSA delegates will no 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 point’s 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.
