Governance of Healthcare Professionals

This video is part one of a 21 part video series on self regulation. The goal of this video series is to ensure that those involved in the administration of the Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA) understand the regulatory regime, recognize their role and functions, and appreciate their duties and obligations. Participating in the regulation of a profession in order to protect the public of Ontario is both an exciting and a serious responsibility. Video topics include: Confidentiality, External Communications, Strategic Planning, Risk Management, Making Regulations, By-laws, Standards and Guidelines, and Roles and Responsibilities (of Council, Committees, Registrar, and Staff).
