HCPC Governance

Just like the BPS, the HCPC seeks to ensure that research conducted within the field is regulated to ensure that it meets robust standards of ethics.

Within the HCPC's published Standards of Proficiency for Practitioner Psychologists, the use of research is mentioned a number of times, specifically, within proficiency 14.

It is incumbent upon us as practitioenrs, whether in training or completed, to be adept at using research as well as evaluating it.

The standards can be found here: http://www.hpc-uk.org/assets/documents/10002963sop_practitioner_psychologists.pdf
