A seminal seminar for change

Smart tools for better behaviour

On 15 November, health care practitioners will descend on Citadines on Bourke, Melbourne, for a one day seminar entitled Using data and intelligence to drive improvement.  Jointly hosted by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the Health and Care Professions Council UK (HCPC), the event looks at how research can help in the process of making decisions, policy and compliance activities when it comes to the regulation of those working in the health sector.

BehaviourWorks Australia’s director Liam Smith presents the afternoon keynote presentation “Exploring new regulatory tools”, which explores how behavioural science insights can be applied to a regulatory practice. Enforcement and compliance may be the traditional go-to tools for regulators, but there are many more options to change behaviour. He will outline an overarching approach on how to design interventions, explaining how to measure and influence the drivers of behaviour.

Participants will have the opportunity to apply some of his insights to their own to situations in small groups, with Liam assisting in answering questions and generating solutions.
