Credentialing for health care personnel: Where do we need to go?

Join us for an HPN webinar entitled: "New Directions in Credentials for Health Care Personnel: Implications for Education Programs, Credentialers, Employers, and the Public."

With increasing attention to health care quality, pressure is growing, from both government and private payers as well as the public, for health professionals to demonstrate minimum competencies—often defined as holding the appropriate credentials.

This webinar will examine opportunities and pitfalls in the training, accreditation, certification, and credentialing environment. Other issues examined include:

  • Recognition of new occupations/technologies
  • "Degree creep"
  • Impact of new models of education: distance education/ for-profit programs
  • Globalization


  • Sharon Goldsmith, principal of Goldsmith International
  • Roy Swift, Director, Personnel Standards and Certification, American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

Date: November 18, 2010

Time: 1:00 PM EST


  • $79.00 - HPN Members
