Reduce inequities between health care professionals groups
There are currently many exampls of inequities and lack of parity in terms of pay and conditions between different professional groups in health care. However, to focus on one, access to educational opportunities, time and funding, varies considerably between professional groups. I am of the opinion that access to ecuational opportunities and leave should as a minimum reflect each profession's obligations for continuing professional development (as outlined by their responsible authority) but should also support progression to allow people to work at the top of their scope.
Why the contribution is important
The lack of parity currently, fosters perceived lack of value for some professional groups.
At a time when recruitment and retention of the health workforce is a priority, actions that demonstrate valuing of all professions may reduce the current levels of attrition.
