    In order for regulators to achieve excellence they must be aware of the legal framework in which they operate. While part of that legal framework is statutory, part of it is also judge-made law. This webinar will summarize and analyze the most interesting recent Canadian and U.S. cases in regulatory law, pulling together themes and highlighting differences between the two countries. The webinar will also provide attendees with tips for managing and applying those decisions in the regulatory setting.

    Learning objectives: Get up-to-date on the most recent cases of interest to regulators and learn how to apply the principles from those cases to your organization's practices.

     

     

    Offerings are presented through a web-based PowerPoint and audio teleconference, allowing attendees to participate and ask questions from their own office or conference room.  Using a speakerphone and PowerPoint at your location, you can have multiple attendees for one registration fee.

    Professional regulators are increasingly being tasked with developing continuing competency programs in order to meet demand from legislators and the public.  In response, regulators have created programs typically based on the programs that other regulators use, often without fully understanding the strengths, weaknesses and evidence underlying these choices in program design.  This webinar will provide regulators with the evidence behind multiple program design options and discuss their utility in achieving different program goals.


    Offerings are presented through a web-based PowerPoint and audio teleconference, allowing attendees to participate and ask questions from their own office or conference room.  Using a speakerphone and PowerPoint at your location, you can have multiple attendees for one registration fee. Attendees receive a copy of the PowerPoint presentation after the webinar.  Webinar attendees can also choose to purchase the webinar recording at a discounted rate when registering.

    Presenter:

    Kris Head is the principal of Kris Head Consulting, specializing in the design of continuing competency programs and organizational change management.  He has worked with several Canadian professional regulators to provide comprehensive design options based on the research literature so that regulators can make informed decisions based on what will work for their individual organizational goals.  Kris began his career as a Physical Therapist and in addition to two degrees in kinesiology and Physical Therapy, he has a Master of Science degree and an MBA.
