HSE and Continuing Professional Development

The Health & Social Care Professions section of the Leadership Education & Development HR Directorate aim in so far as is feasible in the current difficult times to facilitate Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for the Health & Social Care Professionals (H&SCP), with the ultimate aim of improving the service delivered to HSE clients

CPD activities should:

  •    Ensure that professionals are able to maintain and develop skills, competence and standards in the practice of their own profession and in contributing as part of a team to the overall quality of care provided.
  •    Be determined on the basis of prioritised needs which reflect clear service need while taking into account individual development needs.
  •    Support the provision of high quality health and personal social services.
  •    Clearly demonstrate the benefit to consumers, the service, the profession and the individuals participating.
