In a time of limited resources and expanding workloads, we are often tempted to think that the professional discipline process is complete once the final order or settlement agreement is signed. But providing effective oversight of practitioners after they have been disciplined is essential if professional regulation is to produce the desired result - improved licensee performance. How do we establish oversight systems which can provide us with meaningful information about licensee compliance and performance improvement? And how do we ensure that the information we get, whether from internal or external sources, is objective and reliable? Recent initiatives at both the federal and state levels in the United States offer some potentially useful guidance for promoting impartiality and effectiveness in post-disciplinary oversight mechanisms. This session will explore those initiatives and their potential value for regulatory authorities in both American and Canadian jurisdictions.

Learning Objectives:

    • Learn about recent efforts to set standards to promote both impartiality and greater effectiveness in post-disciplinary oversight processes
    • Consider how such standards might be applied in both American and Canadian jurisdictions; and
    • Identify ways to maximize impartiality, objectivity and cost-effectiveness in the oversight process
