Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterProfessional


As a Scholar, the health and social care professionals pursue excellence by continually evaluating the processes and outcomes of their daily work, comparing their work with that of others, and by actively seeking feedback to improve the quality of care and support they provide for the older person and their family. The main competence part of the role of the Scholar is described in this chapter. The first competence is about growing one’s expertise by different ways of learning and disseminating this expertise. The second competence of this role concerns evidence-based practice and the innovation of care and services.
