It focuses on the "soft skills" (rather than on the hands-on technical skills) that are needed to perform in a professional, ethical, legal, and competent manner, regardless of one's job function/position-e.g., communicating appropriately, working well on teams, respecting and valuing differences, and interacting effectively with co-workers, patients, visitors, and more
