Emerging COVID-19 Challenges for the Safety and Standards of Patient Care
A video recording of IAMRA's webinar on Emerging COVID-19 Challenges for the Safety and standards of Patient Care is now available.
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 webinar we explored these emerging impacts and the response of medical regulators in different countries.
Panelists offering perspectives from Australia, the UK and the USA included:
- 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 were made by Dr. Kgosietsile Letlape, Chair of IAMRA.
The webinar was chaired by Mr. Martin Fletcher IAMRA Management Committee member and CEO of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
