CPD Points Granted by the Irish Association for Social Workers (IASW)

We are pleased to inform you that the IASW CPD Committee has accredited your programme: Irish Gerontological Society Scientific Meeting 2016

As of May 2015, the IASW Board have amended the IASW policy in relation to allocating CPD points in the light of the new CORU SWRB’s CPD Standard and Requirements Framework:

The IASW CPD committee will continue to accredit courses as relevant to the social work profession. But it is the individual social worker’s responsibility to allocate CPD credits themselves (as stated in the CORU SWRB CPD Framework) for new and enhanced learning resulting from attendance at the event. This is based on the principle that one hour of learning is equal to one CPD credit.

Best of luck with the programme!
