‘Core Values for Psychiatrists’ (CR204) 

The Report:
  • articulates and clarifies the values operating in psychiatry today.
  • outlines 8 core values – Communication, Dignity, Empathy, Fairness, Honesty, Humility, Respect, Trust.  The values are developed into themes and principals covering all ages from the early developmental stages through to end-of-life care.
  • complements and sits alongside the RCPsych Code of Ethics (CR186) http://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/files/pdfversion/CR186.pdf  and Good Psychiatric Practice (CR154) – http://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/files/pdfversion/CR154.pdf
  • highlights a skills based approach to the curriculum, to training and to working with complex and conflicting values, facilitating balanced decision-making in clinical practice.
  • enables a collaborative dialogue and understanding between the patient and the psychiatrist. This facilitates shared decision-making which can have a positive impact on health recovery outcomes for the patient.
