The challenge of effective professional practice

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

After we have finished formal education we must continue to update our knowledge to remain effective practitioners. This may involve acknowledging that a treatment which previously appeared to be the most effective according to the best evidence available, is no longer recommended because of new evidence. If we are not able to change our minds, we will become fossilised practitioners, dinosaurs heading towards extinction.
