Health professional regulation - facing challenges to acting in the public interest

WHPRC 2016

Health professional regulation faces many challenges in a world characterised by political, social, economic and technological change. Widespread reform of health professional regulation reflects policy initiatives by many governments to ensure sustainable, efficient and effective health service delivery. But what are the implications, and how do we ensure the public’s best interests are met?

Scheduled to run over 1.5 days, immediately before the World Health Organization’s World Health Assembly in Geneva, the fifth World Health Professions Regulation Conference will provide participants with insights, perspectives and discussion on current challenges in health professional regulation.

Key speakers will explore the lessons learned from competence-based approaches to regulation, compare regulatory models and examine ways of promoting best practice in regulatory governance and performance.

Be part of the global community of health professionals who are interested in regulation, and discover effective ways of moving forward in Geneva in May 2016.
