    Australian, Continuing Professional Development

    Continuing professional development (CPD) is how health practitioners maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence, and develop the personal and professional qualities required throughout their professional lives.

    Health practitioners who are engaged in any form of practice are required to participate regularly in CPD that is relevant to their scope of practice in order to maintain, develop, update and enhance their knowledge, skills and performance to help them deliver appropriate and safe care.

    Dental practitioners in Australia are required to complete a minimum of 60 hours of CPD activities over a three-year CPD cycle (current cycle ends Wednesday 30th November 2022).

    At this Congress, delegates can accrue 154 hours worth of CPD*. With the extended on-demand period this is a great opportunity to make the most of this education opportunity.

    You can view your CPD hours via 'My Account', please click here for more information. An official certificate will provided at the conclusion of the extended period, in March 2022.

    ADA Members will have their accrued Congress CPD uploaded to their Member CPD log at the end of the extended period.
