Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?

Continuing professional development is the means by which members of the clinical profession maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence, and develop the personal and professional qualities required throughout their professional lives.

The CPD cycle involves reviewing practice, identifying learning needs, planning and participating in relevant learning activities, and reflecting on the value of those activities.

How many CPD hours will I achieve for completing this Program?

As a general guide, one hour of active learning equates to one hour of CPD. It is the responsibility of the individual student to calculate how many hours of active learning have been completed. The hours of active learning estimated above should act as a guide to CPD hours.

For all other health professionals completing this program, your continuing professional development (CPD) requirements may vary and it is important to remember that it is your responsibility to maintain and register CPD with your professional body. In many instances, your regulatory authority will recognise hours of learning as stated above.

How long do I have to complete the assessment?

12 months. The time is calculated from when a student is provided with online access to their assessment. Within the BenchmarqueIQ platform, students will be provided an initial 6 months to complete and submit all required assessment activities. Friendly email reminders will be sent to students to ensure an assessment is completed on time. At the completion of the 6 month period, students can request up to a maximum of 2 extensions, each extension being for a period of 90 days. If requesting a second extension, the request must be in writing.

If the entire 12 month period expires and a final assessment has not been submitted, The Benchmarque Group reserves the right to deem the assessment Not Competent and remove the student from the program.

What if I cannot complete the assessment in the allocated time?

If the entire 12 month period expires and a final assessment has not been submitted, The Benchmarque Group reserves the right to deem the assessment Not Competent and remove the student from the program.

How many times can I submit my assessment?

If you are deemed Not Yet Competent on your first and second assessment submissions, feedback will be provided. It is very important that you read all the feedback provided. The Assessor will have identified any areas where additional evidence is required or any questions that need to be reviewed and resubmitted. If, after 3 unsuccessful submissions, you are unable to demonstrate competency on your assessment, your assessment will be deemed Not Competent. Feedback will be provided to you and what the possible following steps and outcomes are.

What do I receive at the completion of the program?

At the completion of the program, successful students will receive a Statement of Attainment for Screening and Identifying Chronic Disease in Primary Health. A Statement of Attainment is issued when an individual has completed one or more accredited units.

How is this course different to the other Chronic Disease Programs offered by The Benchmarque Group?

The Benchmarque Group have 3 courses that focus on management of chronic disease. The Screening and Identifying Chronic Disease in Primary Health program explores ways that primary health organisations can more efficiently screen and proactively identify patients managing chronic disease. Accurate Health assessment is fundamental to establishing a pathway for individuals within the health care system regarding their primary disease management, care planning and funding models. The Chronic Disease Support Program is focussed on students having an understanding of chronic disease within Australia and the broad principles that can be implemented to support improved patient outcomes. The course provides skills and knowledge to support a client with a chronic disease through assessing their chronic disease and risk factors, exploring readiness for change, identifying health behaviours to change and working with the client and their health professionals to develop a chronic disease self-management plan. The Graduate Certificate in Advising on Chronic Disease is designed to be focused on the skills and knowledge of the individual practitioner work collaboratively with clients in the role of a CDSM Advisor. The program explores the use of self-management care models that are best suited to the patient’s needs, collaborative formulation of management plans and skills to support patients to access services to assist with the attainment of these goals.
