What makes us fit to practise?
To practise safely, it goes without saying that healthcare professionals must be competent in what they do. They must maintain a sufficient level of skill and knowledge and practise within their levels of competency. However, fitness to practise is about more than just clinical competence. In this new CET article, Peter Charlesworth, a former member of the GOC's fitness to practice committee, reviews the fitness to practise process and analyses the findings of 13 hearings from October 2017 to March 2018.
Once complete, you can undertake an optional discussion to make this CET interactive.
