Regulation: Creating and supporting quality environments for quality health professionals and quality care
With most events being cancelled over the past few weeks, we know that many are wondering about this year's World Health Professions Regulation Conference scheduled to take place on 16 May in Geneva, Switzerland. As Health Professionals, it is our responsibility to set a good example and ensure the health and safety of our community. The situation is evolving constantly and we are closely monitoring developments related to Covid-19 in the hope that we can make a decision regarding the running or cancellation of the conference by early April. Our decision will be informed by guidance from local, state and federal health authorities in Switzerland and the WHO. We will contact you as soon as we have further information to share.
To continue to support health professionals and regulators during this time, we are looking into organizing a series of webinars on regulation subjects which this pandemic has highlighted. We will keep you updated with developments of this new initiative.
We wish you and your families all the best for the challenges ahead in the fight against Covid-19.
