Each profession has unique elements. It has its own scope of practice and service, its own body of knowledge and skills, its own way of regulating itself. One way of classifying the professions is according to the primary focus of their practice - whether it is the material world (such as engineers, architects and laboratory scientists) or whether it is people, human beings (such as teachers, lawyers, social workers, ministers of religion and, of course, health care professions). The people centred professions serve their fellow humans in different ways. They provide help with tasks which oil the wheels of society (such as educating the new generation, drawing up legal contracts, or even keeping people healthy).
