Violence has become an undeniable component of many individuals living in South Africa. As a result, there is an increasing awareness of the negative effects of violence on the population. The cost to society when individuals are psychologically and physically harmed as a result of exposure to violence and trauma is immeasurable . The different Trauma and Stress-related disorders will be discussed in this workshop. When a person experiences a traumatic event, he/she becomes an injured person that suffers from emotional wounds. Over time, even without professional treatment, the symptoms of an emotional trauma generally diminish, and normal daily functioning gradually returns. However, sometimes the sequelae of the aftermath do not subside. Therefore, when a person’s daily life functioning or life choices continue to be affected by the traumatic event, professional assistance may be required. This workshop content will address the health practitioner’s role when addressing trauma.

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.
