The Healthcare Communications Association (HCA) has long been committed to supporting professional development, offering a range of courses and best-practice sharing to help healthcare communication professionals to develop their knowledge and skills. However, until 2022 the knowledge and skills areas to focus on, the standard to which this should be done, and the ongoing commitment needed to maintain standards, had not been agreed within healthcare communications.
As the leading professional association in healthcare communications, the HCA has now published Advancing healthcare communications: HCA CPD standards, following consultation with its members. This sets out a clear CPD framework, establishing the importance of CPD for our profession, and putting us on a par with the many other professions, such as legal, financial, and medical, that have CPD frameworks in place.
