    Emerging COVID-19 Challenges for the Safety and Standards of Patient Care

    Beyond dealing with the immediate and pressing health system impacts, the COVID -19 pandemic and the resulting lockdowns are raising new, longer-term challenges for medical regulation globally.  In this interactive webinar we will explore these emerging impacts and the response of medical regulators in different countries.

    Topics to explore will include the mental health of doctors and implications for fitness to practice processes; the impact of delayed care for patients and concerns raised with regulators; the rapid rise of telehealth and new regulatory challenges; the accountability of doctors in clinical governance to ensure safe patient care; and the role and expectations of medical regulators once we have a vaccine.

    Invited panelists will offer perspectives from Australia, the UK and the USA:

    • Dr. Ruth Vine, Australian Deputy Chief Medical Officer for Mental Health and Committee Member, Medical Board of Australia
    • Mr. Harry Cayton, Professional Regulation and Governance Advisor and former CEO of the Professional Standards Authority, United Kingdom
    • Ms. Nicole Krishnaswami, JD, Executive Director, Oregon Medical Board, USA

    Closing comments will be made by Dr. Kgosietsile Letlape, Chair of IAMRA.

    The webinar will be chaired by Mr. Martin Fletcher IAMRA Management Committee member and CEO of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.

    For more information, contact the IAMRA Secretariat.

    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
    Chair of IAMRA
