The Council is responsible for ensuring that practitioners are competent and fit to practise Chinese medicine. One of the ways that it does this is by requiring practitioners to meet the requirements of recertification/continuing professional development (CPD) programmes set by the Council.
A recertification programme is the name given to the set of activities and processes that the Council requires you to undertake or satisfy, on an ongoing basis, to demonstrate that you are continuing to maintain your competence to practice. This includes participating in CPD.
The Council recently consulted on its proposed compulsory recertification/CPD programme for Chinese medicine practitoners. A summary of this consultation can be found here.
