Audience: Education providers, Prospective registrants, Registrants
This qualitative study was commissioned from the Durham University as part of a wider research programme exploring aspects of professionalism. The study looked at the understanding of professionalism within three regulated professions (chiropodists / podiatrists, occupational therapists and paramedics) to explore what is perceived as professionalism by both students and educators, and why / how professionalism and lack of professionalism may be identified. This report led to a series of initiatives designed to amplify the debate on professionalism amongst HCPC regulated professions and explore ways in which professionalism can be better understood as a key element of good professional practice.
