Competence

  • Understand and respect the limits of your competence and responsibility.
  • Seek advice or assistance when your level of experience is inadequate to deal with a situation on your own.
  • Never recommend medical treatment, or any particular action, that might be interpreted by patients or others as medical advice.
  • Be willing to undertake examination – which may include physical contact – of any patient.
  • Reflect and learn from your experiences in the academic and clinical settings.
