The International Association of Medical Regulatory Authorities (IAMRA) International Conference on Medical Regulation was held on 7 -9 October 2018 in Dubai. 

A member based organisation, IAMRA's purpose is to encourage best practice among medical and health regulatory authorities worldwide in the achievement of their mandate, to protect, promote and maintain the health and safety of the public by ensuring proper standards for the profession of medicine. 

As part of the conference, the Australian Dental Council’s (ADC) Chief Executive Officer, Ms Narelle Mills presented on the ADC’s experience in the evolving Australian accreditation landscape. 

Titled Outcomes not inputs: a multi professional framework for accreditation, Ms Mills’ presentation outlined the current Australian accreditation landscape and the potential effect the Independent Review of Accreditation Systems within the National Registration Scheme for health professions could have on the Australian health sector. 

As accreditation and regulation in the health sector play an important role in ensuring public safety, conferences such as the International Conference on Medical Regulation is one way for those involved in health regulation to come together and share their experiences, explains Ms Mills.

“This conference is a platform for health regulators, policy makers, and educators to come together and draw on the knowledge and shared experiences which, in-turn, contributes to quality improvement in all our approaches.”  

“For the ADC, accreditation of programs of study is a core function of our work. The opportunity to present on the ADC’s outcomes based approach to accreditation in this forum is one way we can raise the profile of the work underway and test our thinking with an international audience” she said.
