    IAMRA's upcoming webinar on Disruption in Healthcare and Regulation will take place on May 17, 2021 at 19:00 UTC (2:00 pm U.S. Central Time).  It may be helpful for you to reference the Time and Date website to check your local time for this event; if you do not see your city listed, try clicking on the link for your continental region listed just above the city list. The duration of the webinar is 1 hour.

    COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of life in some way or another.  It has challenged and changed how we live and how we work. In this webinar, we will consider the  lessons we, as regulators, have learned – what’s worked, what hasn’t, and what can we do better in the future when faced with a similar challenge. We will also take a wider view of the medical regulation landscape  – what can, and should, we be talking about right now?

    This webinar will be chaired by Mrs. Joan Simeon, CEO of the Medical Council of New Zealand and member of the IAMRA Management Committee.

    Panelists include:

    • Jantze Cotter, Director, Professional Competence, Research & Ethics, Irish Medical Council
    • Aleyna Hall, Deputy CEO, Medical Council of New Zealand
    • Dr. Cheryl Walker-McGill, Immediate Past Chair, Federation of State Medical Boards of the United States

    The video for IAMRA's webinar on The Challenge of Humanizing Medical Regulation in a Post-Covid World is now available.

    Medical regulation rightly has patient and public protection at the heart of its work.  However, we also know that regulation can have a devastating impact on the stress, health and well-being of doctors, particularly when they are under investigation. This is undoubtedly exacerbated by COVID-19 and lockdowns that have had a huge impact on the mental health of doctors and the community more widely. This webinar highlighted work underway to humanize medical regulation. What have doctors under investigation told us about the experience? What does humane regulation mean? And how should we respond as medical regulators across the world particularly in the emerging post-Covid world?

    This webinar was chaired by Martin Fletcher, CEO of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and member of the IAMRA Management Committee.

    Speakers included: Anna Van Der Gaag, former Chair of the Health and Care Professions Council (UK), and now with an academic appointment at University of Surrey; Susan Biggar, National Engagement Advisor for AHPRA; and Dr. Heidi Oetter, Registrar of the College of Physician and Surgeons of British Columbia (Can) and Chair-elect of IAMRA.

    IAMRA's 2021 Virtual Conference will take place October 12-14, 2021. 

    The Theme of the Conference is Supporting a Workforce Under Pressure – The Regulator’s Role.

    We want the conference to be as accessible as possible. Organizations, both members and non-members will pay a single registration fee, entitling all their staff, board/council members, etc. to attend as little or as much of the conference as they wish.  

    As IAMRA has members all around the world, the conference start time will be different on each day so that the majority of attendees will have at least one day when it will be convenient for them to attend the conference ‘live’.  All attendees will have the option to attend ‘live’ on every day of the conference if they wish.

    All conference sessions will be recorded so that attendees can watch recordings of sessions at their leisure if they are unable to attend the live event. The conference content will be different on each day. 

    Please visit our IAMRA Conference page for more details.

    IAMRA would like to recognize the extraordinary effort and dedication of medical regulatory authorities around the world in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    We know that you are working hard to maintain focus on public health and safety and ensuring high standards of clinical practice while at the same time, working from home, advising government, responding to medical capacity and training requirements as well as innumerable other issues. Many of your council and board members are also front-line practitioners adding to the challenges of delivering effective and responsive regulation at this difficult time. Your dedication and support of medical practitioners is, no doubt, making a positive difference to the pandemic’s trajectory.

    Medical regulation is a challenging and pressured at the best of times, but even more so during these times of great change and uncertainty. IAMRA’s Management Committee and Secretariat acknowledge your hard work and commitment in keeping your communities safe in these unprecedented times.

    Please be assured that  IAMRA’s Management Committee is also working hard to shift the Association’s priorities in response to the effects of the pandemic. We will be sharing regular updates over the coming months.

    With my very best wishes and heartfelt appreciation,

    Dr. Kgosietsile Letlape
