Doctors in training are exposed to pressures and distractions to which they do not always respond appropriately, and individuals and institutions can struggle to deal effectively with difficulties when they arise. This book exposes the myths surrounding medical professionalism and strips it of pretensions or exclusivity, making a complex subject accessible and easy to comprehend. It promotes best practice for dealing with unprofessional behaviours amongst doctors-in-training. Divided into two main sections, this workbook first explores topics such as what constitutes professionalism, how it might best be taught and assessed, the interactions between professionalism, ethics and legal frameworks, international trends in medical education in relation to professionalism and implications for public policy. The second section presents 29 international case studies based on real life, explores issues and makes practical recommendations. Medical educators and students will appreciate the common format with key discussion points for each case and international health and social care professionals will welcome inspiration from the candid, sincere exploration of the topic. 'I welcome this book unreservedly and I am sure it will play an important role in furthering the teaching of medical professionalism.' From the Foreword by Professor Jim McKillop
