The Clinical Competencies for the CCE
CS 4.1 General practitioners are ethical and professional.
CS 4.2 General practitioners are self-aware.
a) Professional knowledge, behaviour and attitudes
This requires knowledge of ethical principles, as well as duty-of-care and maintaining appropriate therapeutic boundaries. The ability to appropriately review potential and actual critical incidents to manage consequences and reduce future risk is an important consideration in this domain. The response to scrutiny of own professional behaviour and being open to feedback demonstrating a willingness to change is included.
b) Learning and professional development.
Being able to respond appropriately to feedback as an educational dialogue, demonstrating ability to reflect on performance, and identifying personal learning needs are important components of this competency. Using critical appraisal skills, actively participating in clinical audits, and demonstrating a commitment to ongoing professional development all form part of this domain of assessment.
Developing your skills in reflective practice is emphasised throughout training and the GP life cycle. Your approach to receiving and accepting feedback, your commitment to professional development and your awareness of the need for self-care, as well as of ethical principles and legislation relevant to general practice, form part of this domain.
