‘An introduction to clinical Pastoral Education for Healthcare Professionals’ is a new CPD offering designed by ACPE (Ireland) Ltd and run in conjunction with the College of Medicine and Health at University College Cork and the Department of Clinical Pastoral Education at Cork University Hospital. This 10 week module draws on the principles of adult transformative learning and is designed to introduce multidisciplinary healthcare professionals to spiritual care, communication, self-awareness, reflective practice and self-care.
The first group of participants completed the fully-subscribed course on 28 March and included the disciples of nursing, midwifery, medicine and social care. The programme was delivered by CPE supervisors Dr Daniel Nuzum and the Rev’d Bruce Pierce and was awarded 30 CPD points from the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and 30 CUE points from the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland.
Registration for the next programme will be opening soon. Further information is available from the Centre for Continuing Professional Development at UCC firstname.lastname@example.org
