In the U.S., the primary responsibility for health professionals regulation falls to states. There is concern that this approach is not well-suited to respond to the workforce challenges faced in a health care delivery system that is undergoing rapid transformation.

Dr. Moore will describe the aspects of health professions regulation that constrain effective and efficient use of the health workforce and offer recommendations to strengthen scope of practice decision-making.

Ms. Dower will describe the California Health Workforce Pilot Projects Program, a unique approach used by that state to test proposed changes to scope of practice.
