Editors: Greg J. Neimeyer (Department of Psychology, University of Florida) Jennifer M. Taylor (Department of Psychology, University of Florida)
Book Description:
Through a variety of diverse perspectives, the authors delve into critical issues related to lifelong learning and professional development and invite the reader to consider the roles and functions of continuing professional development, the problems and prospects associated with mandating it, and the continuing quest to translate effective learning into competent practice that is dedicated to the welfare of the consumer, on the one hand, and the generation of improved outcomes, at the other. Interested readers will range from current consumers to trenchant critics of the current health care system. Anyone interested in improving health care services and developing best practices will find ample food for thought in the pages of this book that can be applied to better evaluating and facilitating ongoing professional competence and health care outcomes.
