A vital part of the work of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Health Workforce Regulation (WHO CC HWR) is the Western Pacific Regional Network of Health Workforce Regulators (‘the regional collaborative network’). The regional collaborative network promotes good practice regulation and cross-country learning on health workforce regulation.
The network holds webinars four times per year and has members from over 20 countries in the region, seeking to share knowledge on regulation and working together to improve standards. Each webinar hosts a key presentation on a topic of interest to member states. This provides an opportunity for member states and other key stakeholders to share their expertise and experiences with the regional network.
The regional collaborative network has set the following meeting dates for 2023:
All meetings are held from 2pm to 3pm Melbourne, Australia time via Zoom.
Webinars are recorded, so if you are unable to join the event live, we can provide you with details on how to access the recording.
Each webinar hosts one or two key presenters who cover a topic in their area of experience and/or expertise. Recent topics have included:
If members have a specific topic they would be interested in hearing about, or if they would like to present a specific topic, members are encouraged to contact the WHO CC HWR secretariat.
Webinars are open to regulators, academics, government officials and policy makers in health workforce in the Western Pacific Region. If you are interested in joining the regional collaborative network, please email WHO_CC_HWR@ahpra.gov.au for more information.
