Healthcare Licensure – Public Health Management and the Law
Monday, June 12, 2023 | 12:30-2:00pm | Online
What is “licensure” and why do we require it in our health care systems? What does licensure accomplish? What bodies have authority over health care licensure? Why is it critical to maintain licensure once it has been granted? Licensure is the process that gives a facility the authority to offer and perform certain health care services, or a provider, such as a nurse or physician, the legal approval to operate within the scope of their professional training and expertise. Professional licensure is a vital safeguard for the public, particularly in healthcare. Each State has licensure regulations that set forth administrative procedures for applying for specific types of health care licenses (facility and provider), maintaining licensure, and for disciplinary action that will ensue for licensure violations. In this workshop, we will look at the requirements for licensure of health care facilities and individual providers under State law and will consider what licensure requirements are intended to accomplish in terms of public health goals.
