Health professionals

The UWA Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Health program will provide continuing education to health professionals as well as address CPD requirements for registration with the National Health Boards of Australia.

Launched in October 2011, the program provides a broad range of high quality professional education through a series of one day seminars.

The program allows health professionals to have access to seminar presentations on campus and/or from home, including from rural and remote Australia.

The UWA CPD Health Program incorporates the latest developments in therapeutics and promotes the quality use of medicines to improve patient outcomes.

Multidisciplinary working and referral pathways are key to quality patient care and outcomes in the developing health economy.  Continuing Education events are an ideal platform to bring the professions together and provide opportunities for interdisciplinary care planning, networking and referral pathway co-ordination.

Key features:
  • day seminars  - fully catered - at a UWA campus venue
  • on site or online access to presentations
  • registrants will receive written confirmation of participation for the purposes of CPD registration requirements
  • optional post course assessment (online)

Registration for the Respiratory Seminar in June 2014 is not currently open

Assistant Professor Lesley Gregory has joined UWA to co-ordinate the CPD program.  She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the area of continuing professional development for GPs and allied health professionals from her previous positions as a UK Prescribing Adviser and Continuing Professional Development and Practice Improvement Manager for the Pharmaceutical Society of Western Australia.

"Interprofessional education ... an opportunity to not only change the way that we think about educating health workers, but is an opportunity to step back and reconsider the traditional means of healthcare delivery ... a change in educational practices, .... a change in the culture of medicine and health-care delivery." - Student Leader, WHO
