Welcome to the CONFERD-HP website

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. The guideline aims to clarify and outline key reporting items for those who develop competency frameworks or competency profiles in healthcare professions.

Our previous 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.

CONFERD-HP is registered with the EQUATOR Network
