The medical field across nations is constantly changing and evolving with new technologies, practices, and innovations. So, a nurse or health care specialist’s education doesn’t end once a degree is obtained. Instead, all medical professionals need to continue their education throughout their career in order to provide the highest possible level of patient care, advance one’s career, maintain membership in professional organizations, and more.
Our current knowledge-based society and the many actualisations within the medical profession require a great responsibility of physicians to continuously develop and refine their skills. Professionalism is a key component to this end. A prerequisite for this aim is lifelong learning so that own practice performance will improve.
