Maintaining Surgical Professionalism - Professor Irving Taylor

8 February 2017

Achieving the highest standards of professionalism in medicine in general and  in surgery in particular is absolutely crucial. Surgeons have a responsibility to maintain patient trust as well as  public trust in all that they do.

This talk explores the present situation with regard to surgical professionalism in the UK and proposes measures which might assist in recognising lapses at an early remediable stage and suggests how they might be avoided.
