Professor Geoff McColl - Title: Health system stewardship - a critical attribute of the contemporary health professional
A core attribute of every health professional is their ability to create the conditions for each patient to have an optimal health outcome. These conditions are generally created by the delivery of evidence-based care in a patient-focussed health care environment. However, with an increasingly complex health care system the contemporary health professional has an additional responsibility to contribute beyond the individual patient and actively support a safe and effective health system. In this presentation the concept of health system stewardship will be explored in the context of the continuum of health professional education and training.
