In education, regulation, professional development, and practice, “competence” has become the dominant way of thinking about the work of health care providers. The philosopher Kenneth Burke has noted that “every way of seeing is also a way of NOT seeing something else.” With the time and attention we have dedicated to teaching, assessing, measuring, and reporting on competence, what are we missing? While competence is a reasonable goal for professional practice - is there something else we are overlooking? This presentation will review current thinking regarding competency in the education and practice of health professions and present alternative viewpoints for better understanding the complex reality of professional practice and personal fulfillment. Lunch provided to those who RSVP.
