Weber Shandwick Is First U.S. Healthcare Practice To Be Trained And Certified In Regulatory Compliance

NEW YORK, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Weber Shandwick today announced it is the nation's first healthcare communications agency in the U.S. to be fully trained and certified in regulatory compliance for public relations. The agency-wide initiative is part of Weber Shandwick's commitment to client partnership and regulatory excellence. The training and certification was conducted by the Center for Communication Compliance (CCC), the only all-in-one source for expert-reviewed training, certification, and consultation dedicated to regulatory compliance literacy for healthcare communications professionals.

Weber Shandwick's U.S. healthcare practice certification with CCC ensures clients that its healthcare team nationwide has practical fluency in the most current regulatory guidelines governing the healthcare industry. As part of the certification, the Weber Shandwick healthcare team will also be updated within 48 hours on changes or additions to the regulatory landscape.

"Today's healthcare regulatory environment is becoming increasingly complex and up-to-date regulatory compliance know-how is a fundamental requirement in our business," said Laura Schoen, president of Weber Shandwick's global healthcare practice. "We're proud to be the first PR firm to complete this critical certification of our U.S. healthcare professionals who, at all levels, are well prepared to deliver regulatory-compliant counsel, materials and program implementation to our clients."

Weber Shandwick has been instrumental in CCC's efforts to set a new standard for regulatory competence in the practice of healthcare public relations. The agency is a CCC Charter Reviewer and a member of the CCC Leadership Circle, which recognizes and honors PR agency commitment to regulatory compliance. Weber Shandwick is the only firm in the 100+ employee category of CCC's Leadership Circle.
