The new standard removes the distinction between formal and informal learning, reduces the minimum of required hours from 25 to 20, and also removes the previous requirement for all CPD activity to be accredited. This includes seminars, workshops, conferences and online programs. Practitioners are now required to determine for themselves if the CPD activity is appropriate for them to increase their knowledge.
Practitioners will be required to maintain a portfolio that documents their learning goals and records all their planned CPD activities and their reflection on how these activities are expected to improve or have improved their practice.
Practitioners will also be required to maintain a First Aid qualification equivalent to HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
The revised CBA Guidelines for CPD for Chiropractors can be found here.
