Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program offers an objective, thorough review of the basics of state regulation of a given profession, with an emphasis on the individual health care practitioner. Among other topics, the webinar will discuss sources of legal requirements for professional licensure; difference between government licensure and private certification; and detail state licensure mandates as applied to individual health care practitioners.

Why Should You Attend:

Identifying and understanding different professional health care practices is a daunting task in today’s multidisciplinary health care environment. It brings together a number of diverse professionals working in a common setting such as a doctor’s office or health care clinic. Yet individual state laws vary from profession to profession and from state to state. While these laws are enacted for the protection of the public, they impose significantly different regulation on these professionals, and often in very different ways.

Find out how to understand and navigate different professions which require specific education, training, and experience. This presentation looks at this body of practice as presented from differing and conflicting state laws. It will answer confusion with a fundamental, insightful examination of licensure by the state versus certification of the individual by a private organization, which is not the government.

Erase uncertainty in this program by knowing the state’s power to regulate a given profession and by reviewing the basics of professional regulatory law.
