Types of CPD activities to maintain competence for Psychologists (subject to change).
All CPD which helps you maintain competence, stay up to date and is relevant to your scope of practice will meet the standard.
Learning occurs through a wide variety of CPD activities. For example:
• Higher education/accredited sources
• Conferences, forums and seminars
• Undertaking research and presentation of work
• Online learning and internet research
• Written reflections on experience in day-to-day clinical practice
• Reading books and journals relevant to your practice
• Work-based learning contracts and employment-related professional development
• Professional or interpersonal interactions such as meetings e.g. case reviews, clinical forums (may be online or face-to-face).
• Current or emerging health priority areas, for example, cultural safety particularly for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. Another example is effectively identifying and responding to family violence.
Undertaking your day-to-day routine work duties cannot be counted as CPD.
