The RCPsych in Wales has developed a set of
Core Values for Psychiatrists.
The Values Framework should contribute to
shaping clinical practice, policy and planning in mental health
care. It encompasses patients of all age ranges and specialties
within psychiatry. It can be used as a training tool, a
reference point and a measuring tool for evaluating practice. It
underpins the therapeutic relationship between the patient and the
doctor, which in turn influences the quality of recovery.
‘Unlike ethics, which seeks to determine
‘right outcomes’, values-based practice relies on ‘good process’,
in particular good clinical skills, as the basis of balanced
decision-making where values conflict.’ (Fulford, 2011)
The Core Values are open to future revision
and they can operate alongside the Royal College of Psychiatrists
Code of Ethics in clinical practice.
They have been developed by the RCPsych
in Wales led by Professor Keith Lloyd, Consultant Psychiatrist,
Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board and Ms Veryan
Richards, Service User Representative, RCPsych in Wales and in
consultation with the Executive Committee and membership in
