    What does evidence-based policy mean for professional regulators? What are the regulatory issues that could benefit from better evidence? Through case studies, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and Professional Engineers Ontario will review how quantitative and qualitative tools can be used to identify, gather and evaluate evidence to assist with policy development. The panelists will also discuss how to engage stakeholders through effective consultation processes and the necessary culture change and training to successfully adopt and integrate evidence-based thinking into a regulatory regime.

    Presenters:

    Lynn Kirshin, Senior Policy Analyst, College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario
    Jordan Max, Manager, Policy, Professional Engineers Ontario

    Regulatory excellence requires the consistent application of good practices – leading to resultant consistent outcomes – along with an organizational commitment to continuous improvement. All regulators need to be agile in responding to changes that are driven by external forces and events, but the truly excellent regulator is able to anticipate change and even drive change in order to better serve and protect the public interest.

     

    This 1-day symposium will examine various ways by which regulators handle change management and endeavor to be proactive in carrying out the fundamental functions of professional and occupational regulation. Using a foundation of risk-based regulation, symposium participants will learn about progressive approaches to regulatory governance, communications (internal and external), entry-to-practice and enforcement (including the complaints and discipline process). Facing heightened critique from economists and often the media, it is important for regulators to be seen to be progressive and proactive – to be demonstrating that they are operating in the real world, regardless of limitations that may exist in their governing legislation.


    Presentations will be accompanied with interactive sessions which will examine a range of attributes of proactive regulation, and answer questions from symposium participants.

    In 2014, three nursing regulators and a care aide registry in British Columbia partnered with key stakeholders to develop integrated competency assessment tools for the evaluation of internationally educated professionals.

In addition, the tools help stream applicants into the most appropriate nursing role as quickly as possible.

    In a time of limited resources and expanding workloads, we are often tempted to think that the professional discipline process is complete once the final order or settlement agreement is signed. But providing effective oversight of practitioners after they have been disciplined is essential if professional regulation is to produce the desired result - improved licensee performance. How do we establish oversight systems that can provide us with meaningful information about licensee compliance and performance improvement? And how do we ensure that the information we get, whether from internal or external sources, is objective and reliable? This session will explore recent initiatives at both the federal and state levels in the United States and compare them with approaches taken in Australia in an effort to identify potentially useful guidance for promoting objectivity and effectiveness in post-disciplinary oversight mechanisms in all jurisdictions.

    The Privilege of Self-Regulation: Use It or Lose It


    Self-regulation is a privilege. If regulators are not vigilant, it is a privilege that can be lost; the responsibility for public protection transferred to another entity.


    Maintaining the privilege of self-regulation required excellence on the part of the regulator through consistent application of good practices as well as an organizational commitment to continuous improvement. Adapting to external forces is as important as being able to anticipate and drive change, in order to better serve and protect the public interest.


    The symposium will focus on the risks to self-regulation, including examples of endangered and lost self-regulation through case studies of what happened as well as thoughts on what might have made the different in the government's decision to end, or continue, self-regulation. Additionally, the symposium will explore ways in which regulators can be proactive in protecting the privilege of regulating in the public's interest.

    While other jurisdictions describe their model of professional and occupational regulation as ‘self-regulation, Canada’s model remains unique around the world.  Professions/occupations in Canada have the privilege of regulating themselves with a majority of professionals, elected by the profession itself, to the governing Councils/Boards. Through its ‘self- regulating’ authority, a profession also retains the ability and responsibility for adjudicating Complaints and Discipline/Fitness to Practice matters within its own profession, and full autonomy for setting, collecting and using registrant fees as necessary to fulfill legislative and regulatory obligations  


    However, self-regulation as we know it in Canada, is a privilege- and a privilege that could be lost here, if regulators are not vigilant.  The overriding mandate of a regulatory College is to protect the public, but too often, we have seen regulators lose their privilege of self-regulation by acting, or being perceived to have acted, in the interests of membership rather than the public.

    The opening session will focus on the role of the regulator, and instances in which regulators in Canada and internationally, have lost this privilege.  The afternoon will focus on way in which to mitigate the risk by pursuing excellence in regulatory board governance, by separating the functions of regulator and association and by taking meaningful measures to engage with the public.

    The ability to communicate effectively is a key component to being a successful investigator. 


    Effective communication involves conveying your thoughts and positions to others as clearly, concisely, and unambiguously as possible and in turn receiving information that others are providing to you with as little distortion and misunderstanding as possible. Good communication skills can serve to improve operational efficiency and productivity in the workplace and increase the confidence level of employees.  On the other hand, poor communication skills may cause message misinterpretation or misunderstanding and lead to roadblocks in getting desired information.


    This session will introduce participants to key components for effective communication including preparation and delivery techniques, use of language and physicality to get your point across, listening skills, and the use of presentation aids.

    About the International Congress 

    CLEAR’s Fifth International Congress on Professional and Occupational Regulation will bring together the international community of regulators and those affected by their work. Focusing on three broad themes, this dynamic and interactive forum will provide attendees information about latest innovations and developments, an opportunity to share challenges and solutions, and offer valuable networking opportunities with international colleagues from both health and non-health sectors.

     

    Congress Themes
    Global Mobility and Entry to Practice will focus on the challenges and opportunities created by increasingly mobile workforces, and discuss the issues occupational regulators face when performing the "gatekeeper" role that is fundamental to professional regulation.


    Governance and Accountability in Professional Regulation will ask: who regulates, how is this task carried out, and is there an optimal model? The role of the profession/occupation will be considered, as will the part government and other critical stakeholders play. The latest trends in roles, structures, and approaches to oversight will be reviewed and discussed.


    Striving for Continuing Competence will review the role of the regulator in ensuring competence is demonstrated throughout a registrant's career. The variety of approaches taken by jurisdictions and professions will be discussed as well as research on assessment for learning and assessment for improving practice.


    The themes of the Congress are pertinent to regulators regardless of which profession(s) or occupation(s) they regulate.

    Registration fees do not include any optional activities that maybe offered.
