Don Boyer spent more than 30 years at Health Canada, including serving in several senior management positions, before leaving Canada’s regulator to start his own regulatory consulting firm. Earlier this month, he began his term as chairman of the RAPS board of directors. Don is a leader in the global regulatory community, and has been active not only with RAPS, but also with organizations such as the Global Harmonization Task Force and International Medical Device Regulators Forum. He holds the RAC credential and is a RAPS Fellow.
I recently had the opportunity to interview Don for the Regulatory Focus series, ‘Focus on…,’ where we talk with regulatory leaders, thinkers and influencers, sharing their thoughts on a range of topics. In this series, we not only discuss healthcare, regulation and the regulatory profession, we also look for unique personal insights and perspectives. In this interview, Don shared his vision for RAPS’ growth and evolution, talked about the trend toward specialization in the regulatory field and stressed the importance of maintaining a problem-solving mindset.
Following is an edited transcript of my interview with Don Boyer:
