Date: 01 March, 2018
The Literature review sought to identify evidence to answer the following questions:
 
  • What are the characteristics of professional regulators’ fitness to practise (or equivalent) procedures which determine how they define, identify and categorise serious misconduct?
  • What factors inform regulators’ decision-making around serious misconduct?
  • Are there political and social contexts that can be identified as having influenced changes to regulators’ decision-making around serious misconduct?
  • What is the evidence base for approaches to defining, identifying and categorising serious professional misconduct?
