Consistency of Rule Interpretation: A Myth or Possibility?

Licensing agencies often face the problem of inconsistency of rule interpretation across licensing staff. While steps may be taken in an attempt to improve consistency, little improvement seems to occur.  Why might that be?  This webinar will explore what agencies need to consider and address if they wish to improve consistency, including the most critical and overlooked element of consistent interpretation--Staff Supervision.
