Friday, 24th October, 2008

Two people from the Programme travelled to Africa to speak about our work to the Conference of the International Association of Medical Regulatory Authorities (IAMRA) in Cape Town, South Africa, 6-9 October 2008. Jan Illing from Newcastle talked about her work on transitions from medical education to practice, and Christopher Hood, Programme Director, talked about the information that a fully-evidence based medical regulator would need to have, and how research such as that being done by the Programme can reduce the gap between what we know and what we know we don’t know. More information about our projects on medical performance can be found in the Research Projects section of our website. 

The conference, ‘Medical Professionalism: The Building Blocks,’ brought participants from around the world together to share best practices and explore new approaches to issues facing medical regulatory authorities worldwide. The event was hosted by the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
