Event for HCPC registrants: The State of Regulation: Professional, ethical and personal dilemmas
Wednesday 8 March 2017
12pm – 4pm
Room EG03, School of Law, Bartolome House, University of Sheffield
This symposium will share the findings from a recent study of HCPC regulation and hear the experiences of two registrants who have been through the Fitness to Practise (FtP) Process. The session will consider the professional, ethical and personal dilemmas that emerge when registrants are subject to the current FtP model and also explore a new way of approaching conduct issues in social work practice. This event will be of particular benefit to social workers who have been referred to the HCPC for practice concerns, as well as those who are interested in contributing to the debate on the future of social work regulation.
Speakers will include two ex-registrants who had differing experiences of the HCPC Fitness to Practise process. Dr Jadwiga Leigh will share the findings from a study which was carried out with Dr Ken McLaughlin and Professor Aidan Worsley and explored the experiences of registrants who had been through the Fitness to Practise Process. Dr Richard Kirkham will be the fourth speaker. Richard, a legal ombudsman expert and Senior Lecturer in Law, will discuss a potential new way of working with referrals relating to practice issues and would like to seek feedback from the audience on this idea. The Chair for this event with be Professor Kate Morris.
This symposium is free and lunch is included however, as this is a small event there are limited spaces available (40 in total).
