CLEAR is pleased to announce that CORU hosted the Board Member Training: Achieving Excellence in Regulatory Governance program in Dublin, Ireland, on June 25, 2013. This offering marks the first time the program has been held outside of North America. CLEAR’s Board Member Training program is an interactive training program designed to prepare regulatory board members for effective service. The program consists of five modules, covering different facets of the role of regulatory board members, from the foundations of occupational and professional regulation to the various competence, disciplinary and rulemaking responsibilities they hold.
CORU is Ireland’s first multi-profession health regulator and is responsible for regulating various professions in the health and social care fields. CORU provides regulatory oversight to twelve different health and social care professions by setting standards for professionals and the educational institutions that train them, maintaining a register of all qualified professionals, promoting professional development and conducting Fitness to Practice hearings if a professional’s competence or conduct is called into question. Ginny Hanrahan, CEO of CORU, was instrumental in bringing the training to the organization and its twelve registration boards. “CORU recently undertook CLEAR’s Board Member Training programme with our Council and Board members. CLEAR brings an international perspective on regulation and governance, with a unique focus on the needs of regulators of professions, based on practical and varied experience. It was a really useful session for all involved and more than met our expectations.”
In combination with CLEAR’s third International Congress on Professional and Occupational Regulation held June 27-28, 2013 in Edinburgh, Scotland, this Board Member Training program provides another opportunity to enhance the international collaboration of regulatory bodies. CLEAR President, Michelle Z. Pedersen with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies says: “It is truly momentous, that CLEAR has the privilege of offering its Board Member Training Program for the first time outside of North America, hosted by CORU. CLEAR's enthusiasm to be partnering with CORU is overwhelming, and provides an exciting opportunity and significant milestone in furthering the promotion of truly international regulatory excellence, and in solidifying CLEAR's reputation as the premier resource for professional regulation, across several countries. I know I speak for many in recognizing and celebrating this exceptional collaborative effort.”
