CONFERD-HP stands for the Guideline for Reporting COmpeteNcy FramEwoRk Development in Healthcare Professions. CONFERD-HP is a consensus-based reporting guideline that is being developed via the recommended EQUATOR Network methodology as a component of my PhD.
Our scoping review of competency framework development in healthcare professions highlighted a number of areas for improvement, including significant variability in the reporting of frameworks. As such, by developing this reporting guideline we aim to reduce this variability. The guideline aims to clarify and outline key reporting items for those who develop competency frameworks or competency profiles in healthcare professions.
CONFERD-HP is registered with the EQUATOR Network as a guideline under development. Updates will be posted on the CONFERD-HP website as they occur.
