Abstract

The technologically advanced and super‑charged pace of today’s society poses a multitude of challenges in the medical and nursing professions. Safe and quality

patient care depend on the skills and competence of the professional caring for them. In such a dynamic environment, life‑long learning, professional development, and continuing professional education are not just a good idea, they are a necessity. The dilemma is that most skill acquisition model were developed with the assumption that students were learning skills in a relatively static domain; once a master, always a master. In fields such as medicine and nursing, where new knowledge, ideas, and methods are constantly being introduced, a master will not stay a master for long. In this paper, we explore how to motivate the master to to engage in continuous life‑long learning.
