The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) recently released the final draft of the Public Health Code – General Rules to allow asynchronous teleconference or webinars as acceptable modality of training as part of the implicit bias training standards. Webinars and asynchronous teleconference were previously prohibited because they didn’t allow for interaction between students and the instructor. These rules will be filed with the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules and become effective March 23, 2023
Under the updated rules, individuals applying to renew their license will be allowed to satisfy the implicit bias training standard through webinars offered by acceptable sponsors. Another positive rule change is the allowance of implicit bias training to satisfy other training or continuing education requirements.
Members with questions should contact Renée Smiddy at the MHA.

The webinar is scheduled from 1 to 2 p.m. Jan. 26. MHA members can register for $155 per hospital, with an unlimited number of connections within that hospital. The single connection fee does not apply to multiple sites within a health system. Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
