Plenary Session Outlines
Preparing doctors for responsibility: change the person or change the place?
Trudie Roberts, Leeds Institute of Medical Education
Doctors’ experience many transitions in their careers. In the view of the UK media and others reporting the issue of increased adverse incidents occurring when new doctors start their F1 year in August the main problem around transitions is the preparedness of doctors for their new role. In this presentation I will explore the idea that every transition involves a critically intense learning period (CILP) in which doctors engage with the specific setting and establish working relationships with others working in that setting. This CILP can only happen in actual practice; therefore doctors can never be fully prepared in advance of a transition. This conflicts with current ideas about ‘preparedness’. The extent to which the specific learning cultures of the clinical workplace recognise transitions as CILPs contributes to or inhibits the performance of new doctors.
Professional Identity (Trans)Formation for Flourishing in Health Professions Education & Practice: Reflection, Relationships, Resilience
Hedy S. Wald, PhD

The active, dynamic process of professional identity formation is fundamental to preparing health professions’ students for complexities of practice and transformative experiences. This session will describe core themes within this process, ie. reflection, relationships, and resilience (both emotional and moral), review relevant literature, and present some exemplars of curriculum implementation.
