Guidance document for medical peer review in diagnostic imaging

To assist facilities with meeting the medical peer review standards, the Diagnostic Accreditation Program (DAP) facilitated a Medical Peer Review Advisory Committee on November 18, 2019 with diverse physician representation from diagnostic imaging facilities across the province. The purpose of the committee was to develop additional guidance on the medical peer review standards and develop tools facilities could adopt. 

A guidance document has been created and posted to the College website and is located here

This guidance document follows recent changes in DAP processes. As of May 6, 2019, the DAP implemented a new accreditation process that extends the accreditation expiry date by one year to allow for all outstanding mandatory requirements (OMRs) to be met prior to awarding continuing accreditation. Under this new process, and as confirmed with the Ministry of Health, facilities must also address medical peer review standards before the expiry date of their accreditation award in order to maintain their accreditation status.
