“Under the National Law, which governs the operations of the National Boards and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), all registered health practitioners must undertake continuing professional development (CPD).” Completion of the NHET-Sim programme is an ideal opportunity  to work toward your annual CPD points if you are a health practitioner. The NHET-Sim programme takes approximately 24 hours to complete and may count toward your annual self-directed CPD program for your health profession.

The College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand (CICM)

The College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand (CICM) has assessed the NHET-Sim Programme and we are pleased to advise the following:

  • Self-learning as part of course: Category 1A, 1 point per hour.
  • Lectures: Category 2A, 1 point per hour.
  • Workshops/Skill stations: Category 2B, 2 points per hour.
  • Simulations: Category 3B, 3 points per hour.

Note those modules that contain simulations would be classified as 3B. However it is up to the Fellow to determine the hours they have spent on each type of activity and then enter them accordingly into their CPD diary (as they may only participate in the discussion following a simulation rather than  participating in the actual simulation activity).
