The Influence of Regulatory Agencies in Healthcare

There are many regulatory bodies (both internal and external to an organization) that influence policy, standards and guidelines, and the scope of practice. For this discussion, consider the following:

  • Discuss two regulatory entities that directly influence care delivery on your unit  or at your organization.
  • How can organizations stay abreast of current changes in regulations, standards, scope of practice, and so on? How should this information be communicated to the healthcare team?
  • Analyze nursing leadership’s role in maintaining compliance with current standards.
  • How will you apply your knowledge of regulatory agency compliance to your professional practice?

Be sure to support your discussion with references to the literature as appropriate.
