HPCZ will not renew Practicing Certificates for Practitioners-not-Undertaking CPD (Continuing Professional Development)

by admin

The Health Professions Council of Zambia (HPCZ) has disclosed that it will no longer renew Practicing Certificates for health practitioners who do not undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to improve their knowledge and skills.

HPCZ Registrar and Chief Executive Officer Bwembya Bwalya says CPD is a prerequisite for renewal of Practicing Certificates and it is, therefore, mandatory that health practitioners produce evidence of having engaged in Continuing Professional Development.

Mr. Bwalya has urged practitioners to utilise the various forms of CPD that include short training, attending lectures, clinical meetings and seminars among others.

Continuing Professional Development ensures that practitioners retain their capacity to practice safely, effectively and legally within their evolving scope of practice.
