The World Health Organization has recently released the Guidelines on Transforming and Scaling up Health Professional Education and Training. ICN was part of the Core Guidelines Development Group that contributed to the development of these guidelines as well as accompanying policy briefs.
The guidelines deal with the complex issues for transforming health professional education through the presentation of key policy issues, summarizing available evidence and providing recommendations and a commentary, which includes guidance for implementation. The guidelines set out a vision of a transformation of education for the health professions, and offer recommendations on how best to achieve the goal of producing graduates responsive to the health needs of the populations they serve.
The guidelines, recommendations and accompanying policy briefs addressing Faculty Development, Accreditation of Health Professional Education Institutes, Regulation of Health Professions Education, Financing Education of Health Professionals and Monitoring and Evaluating the Education of Health Professionals can be found at: http://whoeducationguidelines.org/
