Author(s): Ong Mek HIOK and Haslinda ABDULLAH

The purpose of this study is to examine the policy, organizational power structure and commercial support in continuing professional education (CPE) in three professional associations in Malaysia. A qualitative multiple-case method was employed, and data were collected through in-depth interviews. A constant comparative method was used in the within-case and cross-case analysis. The findings suggest that policy on CPE Regulation, organizational power structure, and commercial support are closely related and intertwined with each other and together they shape the programme planning practices of the professional providers.
