Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON, British IOT - May 25, 2017 - Healthcare scientist Edwin Goodwin, in his new book ‘Appraisal Science: Appraising Healthcare Professionals,’ addresses complex, long-standing issues surrounding the assessment of healthcare professionals in the UK. Based on his own experience and comprehensive research, Goodwin presents a critical examination of how the healthcare regulatory entities function—and how they are flawed—with respect to evaluations and disciplinary actions.
Goodwin uses examples of disciplinary cases (including his own) to illustrate the problems in the appraisal practices of these oversight agencies. He explores the inadequacies in how they handle complaints of incompetence and improper conduct, and reveals his personal experience at the hands of a deeply flawed and adversarial investigative process based on complaints that were mired in discrimination, personal biases of those doing the appraisals, and subpar, unequal, and non-standardized tools for measuring performance and competence. In cases like Goodwin’s, it is the healthcare professional who suffers the most.
Based on an essay he submitted in 2014 to the Health and Care Professions Council (the same entity that subjected him to an egregious investigation), Goodwin published this book to educate others and offer ideas for implementing fair, non-discriminatory practices for appraising healthcare professionals.
“My intention,” says Goodwin, “is to stoke debate, share best practices, and inspire others to take full responsibility for their own work and speak up against inequality, intimidation and mediocrity without fear.”
‘Appraisal Science: Appraising Healthcare Professionals’ is published in ebook format by eBookIt.com and is now available at popular online retailers including Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, and Apple’s iBookstore.
Review copies of ‘Appraisal Science: Appraising Healthcare Professionals’ are available to media contacts upon request. Edwin Goodwin is available for interviews.
