AHPI is working with HSE Health Promotion and Improvement to deliver education and training for health promotion practitioners including HSE staff and colleagues working on the Healthy Cities and Counties programmes. As part of this initiative AHPI has organised a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshop in collaboration with Sligo Institute of Technology. The workshop is titled: Communicating for Change - innovative strategies to get the health promotion message across.
Speakers will include Edel Hackett from Persuasion Republic. HSE staff and AHPI members were invited to attend this event and it is now fully booked. We will be further expanding CPD opportunities for health promotion practitioners in 2018 so watch this space!
On August 15th 2017, members of the Accreditation Board and AHPI Executive Committee met to finalise plans for the launch of the Health Promotion Professional Registration system for Ireland.
Practitioners living in Ireland can now apply through the online application system within the Professional Registration section on this site. This section also includes a list of commonly asked questions about registration and some information on CPD which AHPI will further develop in 2018
