1. Extending Medical Professionalism
What do doctors do? - What should we really be doing? Who is in charge? What is our role in shaping the national healthcare debate? In what areas should the profession evolve in the future?
Medical professionalism is a concept in a state of constant evolution, both from within the profession, and externally from societal and government pressure. The current climate in the NHS poses some considerable risk to medical professionalism. Both undergraduate and postgraduate professionalism education is heavily focussed on the GMC’s Good Medical Practise guidance. Consequentially trainees develop only a restricted understanding of their professional responsibilities. This has the potential to negatively affect the ability of doctors to lead and manage effectively, with implications for current efforts to involve doctors in NHS management.
In addition to Good Medical Practice, trainees require knowledge of the wider context of medical professionalism. They need a strong appreciation of where the profession sits within the NHS structure, to allow them to understand their responsibilities to the NHS on an organizational level. In so doing, we can produce trainees with the potential to influence the health system as a whole, rather than skilled doctors with limited remit outside a narrow area of expertise.
This workshops aims to extend the understanding of medical professionalism; to equip participants appropriately to deliver effective and strong leadership within our health service.
