Full Text: The AJMH based CPE questionnaire system is a voluntary system designed to assist members in the accumulation of NHAA CPE points. Questions are divided into the appropriate subject categories (Herbal Medicine and Medical Science) and each question title refers to the article in this issue of the Australian Journal of Medical Herbalism. Points accumulated through completion of these questions should be recorded in the NHAA CPE diary. Each completed question is worth one mark in the relevant category. The completed questionnaire(s) should be forwarded to the NHAA office with your completed CPE diary at the end of the financial year. Alternatively each completed questionnaire may be sent individually to the office at any time. Answers are not assessed, points are simply recorded for completed questionnaires and a certificate will be issued at the end of the financial year or upon request. For further information please see the NHAA CPE Member's Manual.
