Abstract
The idea that health professionals should be accountable to the society they serve is not a new concept and by the 1990s, the continuing professional development (CPD) of health professionals was being seen as one way in which Canadians' level of health could be improved. The public was, and is still today, increasingly demanding a system that is more responsive to regional and community needs. As a result, there is a need for more health professional education at all stages of the education continuum – undergraduate, postgraduate, and continuing professional development – that meets the health and social needs of the populations being served. The trend is now towards ‘socially accountable’ health care, meaning that the broader context of CPD must also include the personal, social, and political aspects of health care and as such, involve a widening of accountability to patients, the community, managers and policymakers. CPD planning must take into account local and national priorities as well as personal...

Summary Public concern about the quality of health care has motivated governments, health-care funders, and clinicians to expand efforts to improve professional performance. In this paper, we illustrate such efforts from the perspective of three countries, the UK, the USA, and the Netherlands. The earliest strategies, which included continuing professional education, clinical audits, and peer review, were aimed at the individual doctor, and produced only modest effects. Other efforts, such as na...

This paper reports on the results of a demonstration project that examined the role of telehealth/telemedicine (hereafter referred to as telehealth) in providing interdisciplinary mental health training and support to health professionals in a rural region of Atlantic Canada. Special emphasis was placed on addressing the question of how training might affect interdisciplinary collaboration among the rural health professionals. Five urban mental health professionals from three disciplines provide...

Abstract The practice of public health involves the application of evidence to improving population health, and should be accountable to the public. Accountability to the public can be considered either at the individual doctor–patient interface or through population-level policy making. The public, at both patient and population levels, should join the professionals at each stage of the ‘population health evidence cycle’—in asking for, collecting, understanding and using evidence. A greater app...

Abstract The practice of public health has been criticized as being too involved with a narrow, managerial agenda focused on health care rather than the wider horizons of public good. Public accountability is central to the practice of public health, but is not mentioned in current definitions. We offer a new definition that recognizes the centrality of the public, and which should help public health professionals interpret their own role: ‘Use of theory, experience and evidence derived through ...

Community-oriented primary care (COPC), a 50-year-old widely applied innovative approach to primary care development, seems to be the same combination of public health and general practice perspectives currently sought in the formation of primary care trusts in Britain's NHS. The article reviews the experience of implementing COPC methods, the outcomes, and the applicability to and implications for primary care policy, taking the current British reforms as an example. The COPC model has been dev...

While much research has examined First Nations peoples' health in Canada, few studies have explored the role of traditional activities in enhancing health. Using data from the 1991 Aboriginal Peoples Survey (APS), this paper incorporates a set of measures of traditional activities within a determinants of health framework for understanding First Nations peoples' health. Results from the analyses undertaken show that many of the determinants of health identified in analyses of the Canadian popula...

To be safe and effective practitioners and learners, medical professionals must be able to accurately assess their own performance to know when they need additional help. This study explored the metacognitive judgments of 157 first-year medical students; in particular, the study examined students’ self-assessments or calibration as they engaged in a virtual-patient simulation targeting clinical reasoning practices. Examining two key subtasks of a patient encounter, history (Hx) and physical exam...

Within health professional education around the world, there exists a growing awareness of the professional duty to be socially responsible, being attentive to the needs of all members of communities, regions, and nations, especially those who disproportionately suffer from the adverse influence of social determinants. However, much work still remains to progress beyond such good intentions. Moving from contemplation to action means embracing social accountability as a key guiding principle for ...

Abstract Background Continuing professional development (CPD) is a fundamental component of physiotherapy practice. Follow-up sessions provide opportunity for the refinement of skills developed during CPD workshops. However, it is necessary to identify if such opportunity translates to improved physiotherapist performance and patient outcomes. Objectives To determine whether a traditional CPD workshop with a follow-up session with the educator is more likely to change physiotherapists' practice ...

The concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) has been the subject of several academic contributions, but in the health sector the development of an interest in this subject is very recent. Although many practices in healthcare are already socially responsible, progressing from a series of socially responsible behaviours to a socially responsible organization entails a more consolidated awareness of the health sector’s mission and the needs of its participants. In this paper, we will revi...
