PROFESSIONALISM & USE OF MULTISOURCE FEEDBACK

Muhammad Gul, Hamid Hassan

Abstract


Abstract
Doctors have long been considered to be trustworthy amongst the public. This stems from the perception that they are professionals and follow a core set of values. Although many Doctors will be professional in their conduct, there will be individuals who do not adhere to these values. Assessment systems need to put into place to ensure that all Doctors within the defined occupational group are assessed for their professional behavior. One attempt at the latter has been the Multi-Source Feedback Tool (MSF). The MSF is a structured assessment tool that is sent to a pre-defined number of fellow health professionals, that is completed by them and serves to provide both a quantitative and qualitative assessment of one’s clinical professionalism. There needs to be increased awareness of the benefits of MSF tools in Pakistani medical institutions. We also feel that more research is needed to augment its effectiveness in assessing professionalism.
