Solutions for Regulated Professions
Clarium is experienced at providing professional investigative services to regulated professions including health professions, teachers, and others.
In Alberta, a number of professions are regulated by provincial legislation. The purpose of such legislation is, among other things, to:
- Regulate the profession’s members in a manner that protects and serves the public interest.
- Establish, maintain, and enforce standards for registration, continuing competence, and standards of practice.
- Establish, maintain, and enforce a code of ethics.
A regulated profession is required to investigate complaints about its members’ competence and conduct including allegations of sexual abuse and sexual misconduct.
Who is Best Suited to Conduct a Regulatory Investigation
Many regulated professions can be an authoritative source on assessing the competency of their own members. Who better to investigate the competency of a health professional than a health professional? When investigating allegations about competency, the choice of a qualified internal investigator seems quite clear.
However, when it comes to investigating allegations of sexual misconduct and sexual abuse by a regulated member, the choice of a qualified investigator requires a second thought. Is another member from the same regulated profession really the best choice to investigate sexual misconduct or sexual abuse?
Be aware that there is increasing judicial scrutiny about what constitutes a sufficient investigation by regulated professions. Expectations are high. A qualified investigator is one with the experience, expertise, training, credentials, and skill set appropriate for the circumstances. The simple perception of a biased or an inexperienced investigator may be enough to challenge the reliability and findings of a regulatory investigation. There will be times when a regulated profession needs to bring in a qualified external investigator.
