3097.0 Royal Society for Public Health Lecture: Regulating Health & Social Care - With and Without Borders

Monday, October 27, 2008: 10:30 AM
The session will consider the experiences of Dr Mahmood Adil (Medical Director, Care Quality Commission Establishment Team) and Dr Selwyn Hodge (a former local authority education director) in managing, delivering and developing regulatory systems. Starting with the ways in which school improvement in England has been brought about through regulatory mechanisms, the lessons learned will be considered alongside the systems currently being put in place to regulate health and social care. The role of the Care Quality Commission in improving outcomes for patients and users will then be considered. The ways in which regulation in England differ from those in the USA will be explored alongside the underlying cultural differences, and possible collaborative developments examined.
Session Objectives: 1. Provide a synopsis of the health and social care regulatory systems in England. 2. Identify key issues related to adopting an integrated approach to improving quality both in the health and social care sectors. 3. Learn lessons from regulators in other sectors covering broader determinants of public health e.g. Education. 4. Provide a comparison of regulatory approaches in England & the USA and ideas for collaboration.
