The Online Paediatric CPD Program (Chiropractic Paediatrics) for N.Z. Chiropractors

The Online Paediatric CPD Program, now available to New Zealand chiropractors, offers 85 continuing education hours. Continuing education requirements in New Zealand state that all practitioners must complete a minimum of 25 hours of CPD activities annually. At least 50 per cent (12.5 hours) of the hours required must be ‘formal’ learning activities. The balance may be either ‘formal’ or ‘informal’ learning activities. This program therefore potentially provides a number of years of continuing education credits.

The 100% online program now offered to the chiropractic profession within New Zealand was created, designed and written by Dr Glenn Maginness B.App.Sc(Chiro) MCSc(Paeds)

Dr Maginness is a 1987 chiropractic graduate from Melbourne, Australia who completed a three year Masters Degree in Chiropractic Paediatrics at R.M.I.T. University in 1998. Dr Maginness has held over 40 of his own paediatric focused seminars throughout Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the U.K. (England and Scotland) over the last fifteen years and has spoken at numerous paediatric focussed seminars around the world (including New Zealand) over the last 20 years. He was the keynote speaker at the UCA Spring Conference in London in April 2006, in London in March 2014, at the I.C.A. Paediatrics Conference in Las Vegas in October 2014 and at the CCA conference in San Diego in May 2015.

The online program, utilising cutting edge technology, has been extremely popular throughout the chiropractic profession worldwide with participation from chiropractors residing in 11 different countries including the New Zealand.
