Understanding Public Protection: exploring views on the fitness to practice of health and care professionals – Picker Institute Europe – January 2013

“In September 2012, the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) commissioned Picker Institute Europe to explore public and professional views and understandings of public protection. The project was designed to examine:
● understandings of the concept of ‘public protection’ and of fitness to practise;
● understandings and interpretations of terms used within determinations of fitness to practise;
● views on key ongoing issues and questions pertaining to public protection and fitness to practise;
● the information about individual practitioners that participants considered relevant for the regulator to determine fitness to practise, and whether and how views differ.”

Academy publishes new guidance on Return to Practice – April 2012

“The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges today publishes guidance about doctors returning to practice. Measures to support doctors returning to practice after an absence, planned or otherwise, are essential as time away from practice can affect doctors’ skills, confidence and knowledge base.

The guidance, based on the considerable experience of the Return to Practice working group set up by the Academy, alongside a review of existing evidence on return to practice, contains:

Advice for managing the issues facing doctors returning to practice
Practical checklists for evaluating doctors on and/or before their return to practice
Recommendations for establishing an organisational policy on return to practice
Recommendations for setting up an action plan to assist in returning to practice. ”
