ACM CPD Recognition’ was established to assure midwives that ACM CPD Recognised activities are relevant to them and theirprofessional development. Activities are assessed and approved against a set of quality criteria that encompass midwives’ professional and educational requirements consistent with the CPD requirements set by AHPRA. Since the program’s inception, over 700 applications have been processed, representing >1000 events Australia-wide and over 8,000 hours of CPD for midwives.
Each year midwives are required to complete a minimum of 20 hours of CPD activities to meet their registration obligations. ACM provides a number of CPD events per year, but they don’t always meet the learning needs of every midwife. Therefore the wider community needs to fill the gap and ACM wants to make sure that what is offered is of a high quality and meets the CPD needs of midwives.
ACM CPD Recognition grants you :
- use of the approved ACM CPD Recognition badge for promotional purposes;
- a dedicated website listing on the ACM website; and
- direct promotion of your activity to the ACM membership (more than 5,000 midwives!) via the monthly ACM e-newsletter.
To see what it may look like, check out our 'External CPD Recognised' web page for a full list of what activities are currently CPD Recognised. You will see a fabulous variety of activities for midwives to access!!
