Professionalism in healthcare professionals – report – HPC Health Professions Council [UK] – 26 October 2011

“The Health Professions Council has published the fourth in a series of research reports: Professionalism in healthcare professionals.

The report looks at research conducted by Durham University, focusing on three HPC-regulated professions: chiropodists / podiatrists, occupational therapists and paramedics, and explores their understanding of what professionalism means and how it develops. The study also looks at perceptions of unprofessional behaviour as well as the contribution of standards, context and role models.

Participating organisations were recruited to reflect the different training routes for the three professions, with students and classroom / placement educators interviewed on topics ranging from attitudes and behaviour to uniform. The results were analysed to identify emergent themes and recommendations for further work outlined.”
