Doctor. Lawyer. Academic. Author. Researcher. Dr. Marie Bismark is many things, but across it all, she is a passionate, articulate, and driven advocate of patient safety, mental health among health care workers, and complaints resolution. And as such an advocate, much of Dr. Bismark’s career has been in and around health care regulation. 

 

She leads the Law and Public Health unit at the Centre for Health Policy at Melbourne’s School of Population and Global Health. She’s an active clinical practice as an advanced trainee in psychiatry with North Western Mental Health. She is an experienced company director and Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. Her current governance roles include serving as non-executive director of the Royal Women’s Hospital, Summerset retirement villages, and GMHBA health insurance.

 

If that wasn’t enough, Dr. Bismark has worked as a doctor in a number of New Zealand hospitals, served as a legal adviser to the Health and Disability Commissioner, worked as a solicitor with a preeminent New Zealand law firm, and completed a Harkness Fellowship in Healthcare Policy at the Harvard School of Public Health. She’s also published many papers and articles on no-fault compensation, patient safety and healthcare complaints resolution.

 

Somehow, amidst it all, she found time to sit down and chat with Ascend Radio host Paul Leavoy for a wide-ranging conversation covering:

 

  • How fewer than 5% of practitioners account for nearly 50% of the complaints to health care regulators.
  • The effectiveness of mandatory courses in ethics for those who receive complaints.
  • The most common features you have seen regarding sexual misconduct complaints
  • Her professional and academic journey, and much more.

Few regulatory leaders have left their mark on regulation like Harry Cayton. He’s sought-after the world round for his analysis, insight, and recommendations on regulatory practices. In this Ascend Radio podcast, Cayton discusses topics ranging fairness, equality, diversity, the regulatory challenges of the pandemic, and moral duty in the context of regulation.
We’ve seen machine learning revolutionize sectors such as law, health care, and education, but regulation has been comparatively slow to follow. So how can regulators embrace AI to improve their regulatory decision making? And what should the future of AI in regulation look like? Anna van der Gaag, a visiting professor of ethics and regulation at the University of Surrey, joins Paul Leavoy to discuss.
