Methods: Collaboration has focused on regulatory needs as a primary focus but has also addressed commonalities in education and practice across borders. Findings: The presenters will discuss the needs for collaboration, sharing and understanding of the different political environments while focusing on patient care outcomes as the driving force for practice. Conclusions: They will share, for example, the concerns they have by postponing the title protection.
