Allied Health Professions Council of Uganda approves Plus courses for CPD of members

We are thrilled to share that Physiopedia Plus (Plus) courses are now approved for continuing professional development (CPD) by the Allied Health Professional’s Council (AHPC) in Uganda, giving rehabilitation professionals in Uganda access to hundreds of evidence-based courses for their ongoing professional development.

The Allied Health Professionals Council (AHPC) of Uganda regulates the training and practice of all Allied Health Professionals in Uganda, including their requirements for ongoing continuing professional development (CPD). Physiopedia Plus (Plus) offers more than 660 online courses, journal articles and books, anatomy and technique videos, podcasts and live webinars for rehabilitation professionals, and partners with professional organisations all over the world as an accredited CPD provider. This week Plus were delighted to sign an agreement to provide CPD for Rehabilitation Professionals in Uganda in collaboration with the Uganda Association of Physiotherapy, the Uganda Association of Occupational Therapists, the Ugandan Association for Orthopaedic Technologists and the Uganda Speech & Language Therapists Association. This important collaboration in educating rehabilitation professionals is another step in the work being done through the ReLAB-HS activity to contribute to development of the rehabilitation workforce and consequently to improving rehabilitation services in Uganda.

Thanks to our ReLAB-HS activities, Plus membership is available free to rehabilitation professionals in low income countries and as such all rehabilitation professionals in Uganda can apply for free access to Plus courses, which are now approved by the AHPC.

This work is supported by the USAID funded Learning Acting Building for Rehabilitation in Health Systems (ReLAB-HS) project and is not possible without the generous and committed contribution of the Leahy War Victims fund.
