A student code of conduct?


The Health Professions Council (HPC) has recently closed the period of consultation that will help them develop guidance for conduct and ethics for students. The consultation involved students, practising paramedics, and academic staff, and the guidance aims to provide students on education and training programmes with direction on issues of conduct and ethics. It is the role and function of the HPC to set standards of conduct, performance and ethics which apply to paramedics. The guidance that will eventually be produced cannot, and will not, provide answers to every situation concerning conduct, performance and ethics; it can only give broad principles that aim to offer assistance and direction. Education and placement providers also have their own policies and procedures that must be followed.
