Today sees the launch of a handbook on the FIP Global Competency Framework (GbCF). The framework, first published in 2012 and updated in 2020, is a validated assembly of behavioural competencies that can contribute towards supporting foundation level practitioner development and that can be used to map progress towards effective and sustained performance, paving the way into advanced practice. The handbook, published today, contains case studies sharing experiences from different countries of how the GbCF has been adapted and adopted. “Competency development frameworks, comprising a structured assembly of behavioural competencies, are increasingly essential in professional healthcare education, driven by the need for transparency in the training, development and professional recognition of healthcare professionals. The evidence to support their routine use in professional development is unequivocal. This handbook brings together chapters on the revision processes and, importantly, narratives and case studies on how members and leadership bodies have addressed the ‘adopt and adapt’ approach, in the expectation that others can learn rapidly from these cases,” said Ian Bates, director, FIP Hub.
