Revised Standards Of Proficiency
Country of origin: UK
Click for Full Details: www.hpc-uk.orgThe Health Professions Council has launched updated standards of proficiency for twelve of the thirteen professions they regulate. The standards of proficiency are the threshold standards they consider necessary for safe and effective practice. The generic standards are the same for every profession, as well as profession-specific standards.
The review of the standards came about for a number of reasons; it has now been thirteen years since they were launched in July 2003 along with the standards of conduct, performance and ethics. A professional liaison group (PLG) was set up to review the existing standards of proficiency.
The standards were reviewed to make sure they were working, and that they continued to reflect current practice of registrants, employers, educators and others. The group included members of our Council as well representatives from professional bodies.
The changes to the standards are not substantial ? to correct errors or omissions or to elaborate on the existing standards. The Council believe the standards are now a better reflection of registrant?s current practise. The standards also include a new introduction which explains their role more clearly.
The standards are available online.
