SACNA




Welcome to SACNA!

SACNA is a peer-credentialed association of psychologists in South Africa, who aim to promote and stimulate interest in the field of neuropsychology, while maintaining standards in neuropsychological practice. This is achieved by ensuring that its full members have demonstrated knowledge and competence in the field, by way of examination and peer review.

In addition, SACNA's intention is to promote the professional development of clinical neuropsychology in South Africa,

  • through encouraging participation in training and CPD activities,
  • through maintaining regular meetings at regional levels attended by psychologists and related professionals,
  • through hosting a national bi-annual conference, and
  • through liaising and consulting with the HPCSA Professional Board for Psychology, and other bodies pertinent to the practice of neuropsychology in South Africa.

Invitation to join SACNA as a Full Member

Congratulations on your registration as a neuropsychologist with the HPCSA.

SACNA invites you to join the South African Clinical Neuropsychological Association (SACNA) as a Full Member.

Our membership criteria have been altered, under the current changed circumstances in the profession:  At this time, we are awarding Full Membership of SACNA to HPCSA-registered neuropsychologists, who submit two brief (1-3 pages) case reports which demonstrate an acceptable level of competence to the Credentialling Committee of SACNA.

Please let us know if you would like to apply for SACNA full membership at [email protected]

Membership entitles free attendance at our meetings and reduced rates on other educational activities. In addition, our website offers numerous resources which you may find valuable. You will benefit from shared advocacy on SACNA’s behalf and you will become part of an international community of neuropsychologists. The Full membership fee is R1045 for 2024.

As a comprehensive list of HPCSA registered neuropsychologists is not yet available, we invite you to share this with other HPCSA registered neuropsychologists known to you, to disseminate this invitation to join SACNA.

 

Kind regards

June Rossi and the SACNA Executive Committee

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE          

Dr J Rossi (President), Dr E Steenberg (President Elect), Dr S Truter (Past-President) Dr M Mazabow, Prof A Edwards, Dr F Hemp, Assoc. Prof. A Ferreira-Correia, Ms C Gadd and Ms N van Wyk.

CPD - HPCSA Online CPD Portal Changes

Please be aware of the following changes, which will take effect on 1 February 2022:

HPCSA CPD certificates will no longer be issued to HPCSA professionals. After each activity service providers will complete a template  and send it to the HPCSA for capturing points. The new process will then automatically upload the accredited CPD activity points to the HPCSA medical professionals’ profile.

The new process relieves professionals of the effort of keeping track of certificates by allowing automatic updates to your cpd points directly to the HPCSA.

SACNA members will, however, still have the option of downloading CPD certificates from their profiles on the SACNA website. We would like to encourage all to keep records of all continuing educational activities attended. Certificates can  be downloaded from the website to keep records of all SACNA activities attended.
