Continuing Education

Continuing Professional Development (CPD), Continuing Medical Education (CME), Continuing Education (CE)

Under the national law of many countries around the world, all registered health practitioners must undertake CE. The CE requirements of each country are detailed in the Registration Standards for each profession, published on each Boards website. These detail the number of credits/points/hours practitioners must spend each year on learning activities. Some health professions also provide additional guidelines in their Codes and Guidelines.

You receive a personalised certificate for each course you do. Please check with your professional Board with regard to how many points/credits per hour of study are given with Health Masters Live classes. Certified Education (CE) points have been pre-approved for our courses through:

If a class has not been preapproved by your Board you can often submit it to them for approval under the following categories:

Self Directed Learning

Educational activities in this category are those which are conducted individually or are self-managed to extend your practice in Natural Medicine. These may include; learning projects, online educational activities, journal reading, literature reviews and sabbaticals.

Group Learning

Group learning covers activities that are undertaken in company with other learners to enhance your practice in Natural Medicine. Examples of group learning CE include workshops, meetings, journal clubs, grand rounds/lectures and participating in online discussion via social media, forums etc.

Quality Enhancement

Activities in this category are undertaken with the aim of reviewing and improving your practice in Natural Medicine, within an individual, workplace or wider context. A number of meeting types may be considered as quality enhancement as they ultimately improve systems, processes, procedures and patient care. Examples include workplace planning and review, committee attendance, peer reviews, Audit of Practice and being assessed via a Workplace-Based Assessment are all considered to be quality enhancement activities.

Teaching, Research & Educational Development

Activities in this category are related to education in Natural Medicine. This includes a range of activities such as preparing grants, providing overseas aid work and teaching in a University or hospital or clinic setting. Clinical Supervisors and Examiners can count many of their duties towards their CE. This is in recognition that these roles extend the knowledge and skills of both the individual and the broader Natural Medicine community.
