Competence

Professionals involved in interventions also have a responsibility to ensure the

development and maintenance of high standards in their own professional abilities, especially in the following four areas:

  • ? Professional ethics, including maintaining an awareness of current ethical principles and relevant ethical codes and integrating these into their professional practice
  • ? Ethical decision-making, including recognizing ethical dilemmas when they arise; taking responsibility for attempting to resolve these; being able to justify their actions on ethical grounds; and taking particular care where legal obligations may intersect with or contradict ethical principles, working to ensure a path is chosen that is both legal and adheres as much as possible to ethics
  • ? Recognizing limits of competence, including practising within the boundaries of one’s competence; making sure one has the appropriate training to undertake an activity; engaging in continued professional development; keeping up-to-date with developments in the field; and seeking support and advice where circumstances begin to challenge one’s expertise

? Recognizing impairments, including monitoring one’s own lifestyle to recognize signs of impairment; seeking professional support or advice if health or other personal problems arise that may impair professional competence; refraining from practice when competence is seriously impaired; and providing appropriate support for colleagues to include informing appropriate bodies if a colleague appears unable to recognize their own impairment to protect staff, participants, and the public
