The shape of things to come – the Question of Competence
9-10 January 2014, The Haven Hotel, Sandbanks, Poole
This year’s forum looked at the future shape of training and, in particular, whether our system has developed specialist competence at the expense of generalist competence. The forum also asked questions about cultural competence and exploring whether competency-based training has enhanced, or compromised, education and the status of professionalism.
The forum had a combination of eminent external speakers to stimulate discussion, as well as our own faculty leading sessions and workshops.
The forum started with our own trainees celebrating their successes in fellowships, reminding us all why we are so proud of the Wessex brand which has now become HEE Wessex.
