New Macmillan Allied Health Professions Competence Framework

8 August 2017 - 10:17am

The Macmillan Allied Health Professions Competence Framework (MAHPCF) is the first competence framework for UK allied health professionals (AHPs) working with people affected by cancer.

The framework is designed to support managers, teams and individuals by identifying competences that apply to the majority of AHPs working with people affected by cancer. It will assist individuals and organisations to use competence to support recruitment, workforce planning and development, career progression and role design.

This document is designed for use by and with registered AHPs including; arts
therapists, dietitians, drama therapists, music therapists, occupational
therapists, orthoptists, paramedics, physiotherapists, podiatrists, prosthetists and orthotists, radiographers (therapeutic and diagnostic) and speech
and language therapists.

There's also a table to help AHPs to:

  *   Highlight the competences they wish to focus on

  *   Record how these link to appraisals/personal development

  *   Describe evidence to demonstrate achievement of the
competences chosen

  *   Record how the activities link to the Health and Care
Professions CPD standards
