Standards of conduct, performance and ethics - accessibility and understanding

The Standards of conduct, performance and ethics (SCPE) are ethical standards the HCPC sets for the 16 professions they regulate. The SCPE were last reviewed during 2006 – 2008 and the current standards came into effect on 1 July 2008. Because of changes to the register and the changing context of practice for health and social care professions in the UK a review of the standards was required to ensure they remain fit for purpose. This research focuses on registrants and service users with the remit to explore their views on the content and accessibility of the standards.
