Termination of Pregnancy (TOP) is a common experience for people around the world; yet it is often excluded from the curricula of Health Professionals, therefore the aim of this course is to fill this gap.
Creating a neutral and welcoming space for clients to talk about such a sensitive matter is paramount. If we do not have any experience working in this area, we may do more damage without meaning to.
The webinar will focus on understanding the professional responsibilities of health-care providers and psychologist’s caring for women, recognizing appropriate and inappropriate applications of “conscience” in the setting of abortion care, recognize patients’ autonomy and freedom in the process of decision making, and providing objective and compassionate options.
The therapist needs to be able to provide accurate information about the termination of pregnancy, provide woman with a safe space in which a woman can explore her feelings and any reservations she may have about abortion, consider and discuss all of her options, and know that she is not alone.
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.
