Health professional regulation faces many challenges in a world characterised by political, social, economic and technological change. Widespread reform of health professional regulation reflects policy initiatives by many governments to ensure sustainable, efficient and effective health service delivery. But what are the implications of these challenges, and how do we ensure the public’s best interests are met?
Scheduled to run over one-and-a-half days immediately before the World Health Assembly in May 2018, the 6th World Health Professions Regulation Conference (WHPRC) will provide participants with insights, perspectives and discussion on current challenges in health professional regulation.
There are three main themes that will be addressed during the conference:
- A call to set the right standards in regulation
Topics will include: setting the right standards, who is regulating the regulators, ethics and professional autonomy, barriers to implementation, and reimbursement.
- Safety, quality and compliance: Benefiting patients, communities and populations

- Supporting the quality of lifelong learning
Topics will include: continuing professional development (CPD) and a discussion on the need for global standards, fostering innovation, improving patient treatment, the shift in CPD of assessment vs independence, and regulation of specialisation.
