This research report is about engagement and disengagement and its implications for our understanding of the competence of health and care professionals.

It combines two pieces of work on competency and disengagement:

– a literature review by Professor Zubin Austin of the University of Toronto; and
– an empirical study of engagement and disengagement by Carol Christensen-Moore and Joan Walsh at the Picker Institute Europe.

Both pieces of work provide new insights into the triggers of disengagement and the ways in which preventive action might be implemented.
