The HPCSA and the SASP follow specific guidelines when accrediting activities for professional development. You can access all the relevant guideline documents through the links below. Email any related questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
- AS PER HPCSA RULES, ACCREDITATION MUST BE APPLIED FOR IN ADVANCE (3 weeks) AND STRICTLY NO LATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.
- After completion of a lecture/course, the attendance register needs to be sent to email@example.com within two weeks after the activity. You have to keep a copy of attendance registers for 3 years.
- NB. If the course is theoretical all health professionals that could benefit from the course/ lecture can be allowed. Practical courses must be profession-specific and be within the scope of the particular profession.
