inPractice® Africa is a continually updated reference and learning resource for South African clinicians, available both online and offline. Originally launched in 2013, it was relaunched with new features in July 2016. The program provides continuing professional development certificate programs, practice guidelines, and drug reference information, as well as referral clinical support. inPractice® Africa is also available for offline use as downloadable apps for tablets, smartphones, and Windows PCs.

How It Works

inPractice® Africa is designed to be used in 2 ways:

  • Search and efficiently find the information you need to care for individual patients
  • Study complete modules and earn credit

The 3 curricula offered through inPractice® Africa each contain learning modules that can be completed in any order. By passing the posttest in each module, physicians can earn CPD credits and other participants can receive a participation certificate. Users who complete all of the modules that make up a curriculum will receive a certificate of curriculum completion from FPD.
