What does it mean to be a Cancer Survivorship Professional?
Being a Cancer Survivorship Professional means that you can show the knowledge, skills, and behaviours that make you a safe and effective practitioner.
Within healthcare, professionals:
- work to defined standards and principles
- demonstrate evidence-based decision-making
- manage sensitive information
- balance complex ethical and moral issues within a code of practice
- reflect on their practice, either on their own or with collegaues, in order to improve
- operate within the limitations of their expertise
Professionals registered with the RoCSP are expected to meet two sets of standards.
The first is the Code of Ethical Standards which defines how you should behave. RoCSP aligns itself with other health professions and aspires to meet the full requirements of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) in the future. Therefore, we have adopted the HCPC standards of conduct, performance and ethics.
The second is our Code of Professional Standards which defines what you need to be able to do to operate safely and effectively.
