Committee Members of the Professional Practice and Ethics Committee (PPEC)
The Professional Practice and Ethics Committee (PPEC) is
responsible for providing guidance on psychiatric professional
practice and ethics, including issues of confidentiality, probity,
conflict of interest and translating policy into practice.
The Committee includes individuals who have knowledge, interest
and expertise in these areas. Committee members work with other
College committees, faculties and special interest groups and
engage in relevant activities of the College, in particular the
work of the Policy and Public Affairs Committee. They also receive
queries from College members and others and are able to offer
advice on these matters.
The Committee meets at the College up to three times per year,
in addition to doing work between meetings electronically. There
are three vacancies, arising as a result of retirements, and we
would like to recruit to these.
We would particularly encourage members who work in the Old Age
and Intellectual Disability specialties to apply, given that the
Committee is keen to have a mix of people from different
psychiatric specialties. Members should have an interest or
expertise in one or more of our core areas of work, as described
To apply to become a member of the Committee, please email a
short CV (no more than 2 pages of A4), with a covering email
setting out the reasons why you would like to join the Committee
and what you would bring to the work of the Committee, to email@example.com. The
new members will join the Committee from April/May 2017, and will
attend their first meeting in June 2017.
Deadline for applications: 3 April 2017.
