As a member of the AHPI, you have exclusive access to Members Only Resources and details of Continuing Professional Development opportunities that AHPI may organise. This section is available only to our members.
Among the resources available in this section are relevant documents from a number of sources such as Government Departments, World Health Organization, toolkits for practice, relevant Irish and international reports, conference/training presentations, and relevant website links. These resources are presented as downloads and web links.
A competent workforce with the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities in translating policy, theory and research into effective action is critical to the future growth and development of health promotion.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) benefits both practitioners and the organisations they work for, and may involve a wide range of activities. The IUHPE outlines a number of different types of CPD that are valid for the field of health promotion, some of which include:
- Participating in education/training courses;
- Participating in group learning on health promotion;
- Giving a formal presentation;
- Mentored practice;
- Peer group learning;
- Publishing an article;
- Being active in a national or international Health Promotion professional organisation.
The AHPI currently offers an opportunity for CPD as part of its' Annual General Meeting (AGM) where a half-day seminar/workshop is arranged as part of the programme. The Health Promotion Competencies (CompHP Core Competencies Framework for Health Promotion) are used as the basis for choosing the seminar topic. In the future we aim to develop more types of CPD opportunities for members. We will continue to work to add new information and resources monthly.
The AHPI also advertises courses and seminars that are run by other national and international organisations - see our events section
