Eating Disorders have the highest mortality rate among mental illnesses and are one of the most difficult disorders to treat. Some of the difficulties in treating Eating Disorders is the result of a lack of understanding of the complex issues that contribute to the development and maintenance of the pathological symptoms, and behaviour.
This CPD course reviews the DSM-5 criteria as well as the ICD-10 and ICD-11 criteria for Eating and Feeding disorders. This is followed by a discussion of the risk factors. Different theories, approaches, and therapeutic models of Eating Disorders will be elaborated on. Body image and Body Dysmorphia will also be addressed. Criteria for hospitalization and the burdens of eating disorders will be debated. Several Psychometric tests to measure the risks and severity of Eating Disorders, will also be provided.

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
