Abstract
This book examines medical professionalism, dissecting the concept into various components while providing both an evidence-based and personal approach. In recent years professionalism has come under intense scrutiny and stimulated wide-ranging and far-reaching debate. The big issues include teaching and learning professionalism, the assessment of professional behaviour at all levels of practice and the problem of what should happen when professionals are deemed to be acting 'unprofessionally'. Professionalism also encompasses self-care, lifelong learning, teamwork and interaction within a culturally diverse society. This book comprehensively examines all these aspects, to provide a thorough overview of this important and evolving field. It has significant implications for doctors' education and continuing professional development, and is vital reading for medical educators and everyone concerned with the future of the medical profession.
