2020 | The World Continuing Education Alliance (WCEA)
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an annual requirement for health care workers to study a set number of hours each year to increase knowledge and skills that will positively impact healthcare outcomes. The World Continuing Education Alliance (WCEA) has built a platform that enables leading education providers to distribute their CPD courses internationally. Once education is placed in the network, the courses can be accessed through the WCEA’s specialist CPD Learning Management System that is used by hundreds of organisations around the world. The WCEA works in partnership with the World Medical Association and the International Council of Nurses (ICN) and as part of these partnership agreements, significant focus has been placed on making CPD available to all health care workers in low and middle income countries (LMICs). To celebrate 2020 Year of the Nurse and Midwife, WCEA is providing Free Council & Associations platforms that offer free COVID-19 & CPD courses from Royal College of Nurses, Royal College of Midwives, and Aga Khan University.
