Health and Care is a small but valuable field
Health and Care is truly a cross practice area, as it touches on life, pensions, risk management and resource and environment. Its outputs in the areas of research and continuing professional development (CPD) impact actuaries working in a variety of fields.
The Health and Care Board actively influences the environment in which actuaries practice
The Health and Care Board, a member-led Board run by senior volunteer actuaries, advises the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) on important health and care issues. The Health and Care Board sets key objectives annually and has oversight of two subcommittees:
The Health and Care Board and its subcommittees shape the IFoA’s education, standards, CPD, events and research
The Health and Care Board and its subcommittees are committed to ensuring that their members are educated and practice in an environment of the highest standard. Notably, they Board and its sub-committees are responsible for:
- developing topics for member-led research working parties and helping push through research outputs, such as sessional research papers, presentations or articles in the British Actuarial Journal
- pushing forward timely CPD opportunities and events, ensuring all members have access to CPD of the highest standard
- helping to shape IFoA responses on consultations
- raising issues of strategic interest to the profession.
