Research into professional identity and regulation
Research exploring practitioners’ views of the relationship of professional regulation to professional identity.
We commissioned Dr Simon Christmas and Professor Alan Cribb to analyse and conduct in-depth interviews with UK health and care practitioners from across the regulatory spectrum. There is very little research directly dealing with the issue of regulation’s effect on identity, this research fills that literature gap. It also builds on and answers many of the questions raised in our review of the literature on professional identity last year.
