Personality disorder is one of the most misunderstood and stigmatized diagnoses in mental health. Individuals with PDs may meet different criteria but they have at least one thing in common, namely that the chances are their problems will not remit without professional intervention. However, exactly what that intervention should consist of remains a subject for debate. This, along with the disorders’ reputation for being problematic to treat, has posed challenges to their successful treatment.
The aim of the course is to shed light on this complex area of practice for the mental health professional. Furthermore, it aims to provide participants with an opportunity to enhance their understanding and their ability to diagnose, within the area of personality disorders.
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.
