Professional behaviour: Challenges from the faculty perspective

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Introduction / Background
Issues relating to professional behaviour have become a priority for health care professions. This, in turn, has lead to a renewed focus within health professional education particularly in response to guidelines produced by accrediting bodies and registration authorities. These organisations identify parameters that relate to concepts of professionalism within the health professions. As expected, this area is a now a focus at both university and faculty levels. The Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash has established a Professional Behaviour Intervention Procedure. This procedure complies with formal requirements of the university and aligns with contemporary approaches which are becoming evident in the health care professions.
Methods of Research / Description of Activity
This presentation explores the current environment from a faculty perspective. The perceived challenges and emerging issues in monitoring and intervention for professional behaviours in education of health care professionals will be outlined.
Results of Research / Evaluation of Activity
A range of challenges and issues relating to health profession education can be identified which are relevant across the faculty and also of significance to the university.
Conclusions / Issues for Discussion
Areas for discussion include both local and strategic issues such curriculum and assessment, admission criteria and selection processes, the role of universities as well as collaboration across education, government and employment sectors.
