    The United States is not alone in having public members on regulatory boards. Canada and other countries have sophisticated public member programs. Regulators and policy makers will learn about the similarities and differences in criteria for appointment, roles of public members, and measures (where they exist or might be developed) for evaluating public members' effectiveness. In the United States, in virtually all states, laws governing the appointment of public members to professional regulatory boards typically specify “disqualifiers.” For example, medical practice acts usually prohibit a physician (active or retired) from serving as a public member on a medical licensing board. Similarly, a spouse, child, or parent of a physician is often disqualified. “Affirmative criteria” for public member appointments, such as a history of public service, boardsmanship experience, communication skills, or relationships with community groups, rarely exist. Nor do most laws articulate the role public members are expected to perform. This is not the case in other countries. In Australia, for example, public members on all health licensing boards are expected to be representatives of patient or consumer groups. The speakers will address the strengths and weaknesses of the public member programs in different countries.

    Presenters:

    Rebecca LeBuhn, Board Chair, Citizen Advocacy Center (CAC)
    Jan Robinson, Registrar and CEO, College of Veterinarians of Ontario
    David Benton, Executive Director, National Council of State Boards of Nursing

    Evidence-based healthcare workforce policy requires sound, empirical data that is specifically designed to answer key questions. Policy decision-makers and researchers need a reliable resource of information on the number, demographics, practice location and other characteristics of licensees who provide healthcare services. Unfortunately, the existing body of research is small, lacks consistent methodologies and definitions, and addresses disjointed topic areas.


    Licensing boards can play a crucial role in surveying licensees through licensure renewal to collect meaningful, standard minimum data sets that are comparable within and across professions, locations, and over time. This webinar brings together a panel of best practices workforce policy research experts to share insights from one state’s initiative to show what agencies can do, to discuss the significance of healthcare workforce data for policy and planning and to provide information on technical assistance on data collection and analysis.


    This webinar is in follow-up to a session by the same title presented at the 2016 Annual Educational Conference in Portland and will provide additional examples of how this licensing board research is leveraged to support policy and planning initiatives, grants, professional pipeline development and more.

    Presenters:

    Elizabeth Carter, Director, Virginia Dept. of Health Professions Healthcare Workforce Data Center

    Katie Gaul, Deputy Director, Healthcare Workforce Technical Assistance Center

    Jean Moore, Director, Center for Health Workforce Studies

    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.


    This program is offered in conjunction with CLEAR’s Annual Educational Conference.

    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 Agenda


    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.
