Question and answer
analyse potential barriers to professional development
here a re some barriers and how it affects professional development : Motivation Motivation is a fundamental part of nearly everything we do. [ External factors can drive motivation and change behaviour, for example, the provision of incentives or penalties imposed as part of regulatory checks. But internal factors, such as individuals’ selfmotivation, drive and desire to improve are very
important too. Intentions and goals can impact on how much people want to change. Their priorities and commitments may also interfere with their ability to change. Acceptance and beliefs An individual’s personal beliefs and attitudes impact significantly on the way they behave. Perceptions of the benefits of any proposed change versus the costs, both practical and financial, can be important. Perceptions of the views of others may also have an impact. Some healthcare professionals may find it difficult to accept new guidance if it is in conflict with other guidance issued by professional bodies or the opinion of an influential colleague. Other professionals may not believe that recommendations reflect the evidence or that they will achieve better patient outcomes. A person’s belief in their own ability to adopt a new behaviour also has an impact on whether a change is implemented. Skills To make change happen, individuals need to know not only about what needs to change, but also how best to competently carry out the change. Healthcare professionals may need training to ensure they have the skills to deliver best practice. They may need the time to learn new skills and practice them. Support from peers or mentoring might be needed. Individual abilities, interpersonal skills and coping strategies will also affect how easy or difficult it will be for individuals to learn new skills. source: ]
