Summary This course is a small-group based programme which aims to help people in the professions improve their awareness and responsibility around establishing and maintaining professional ethics. The course is solely for people with identified problems about ethics related matters, such as honesty, probity, low level civil offences or general conduct matters.
Ethical or probity issues relevant for the course may include: dishonesty; plagiarism/misattribution; research/ audit fraud; falsifying notes; breaching confidentiality; failing to maintain accurate records; unauthorised accessing of records; inaccurate CV's; misuse of prescription or non-prescription medication; causing unnecessary delays in the progression of cases; personal criminal or civil cases which affect work; emotional over-involvement with patients.
If the issues primarily concern sexualisedbehaviour then the course 'Maintaining Professional Boundaries' is suitable; if the concern is mainly about interpersonal behaviours then the course 'Maintaining Professional Relationships' is the appropriate one. Please note that collectively these three courses replace the previous course 'Maintaining Proper Boundaries'.
What people say about our courses
I would once again like to thank you for what was the most useful, necessary and enlightening course I have ever been on.
Upon reflection of the course it was so beneficial to me and relevant that I can’t thank you enough.
In 23 years since medical school (and indeed during medical school) this has been the most effective, interesting and challenging course that I have done. The impact has been immense.
The space created by the course approach and structure led to an open dialogue that was hugely useful to me. I found the personal realisations unmasked during the course to be transformative.
