Promoting equality and valuing diversity are at the heart of the RCGP curriculum.

The provision of healthcare is guided by a framework of legal and ethical principles that are reflected in professional codes of practice. Ethical decision-making and behaviour in clinical practice requires the application and interpretation of these principles within a specific context, taking into account the perspectives and values of all involved.

GPs need to be able to justify their decisions with reference to both the clinical evidence and the moral and other values that inform those decisions. The knowledge and skills acquired are applicable across the whole curriculum and should be incorporated into all aspects of clinical, managerial and research practice.

Here we have collated key articles from our journals to help you meet the curriculum requirements in this area.

These curriculum resources are regularly updated with relevant articles from our range of healthcare publications. All articles are reviewed by GP advisers. We have set the standard lifetime of an article at two years and will aim to renew all articles within that timeframe. However, some older articles will remain in the listing if our reviewers believe there to be no significant changes to the topic covered.
