Two revised practice standards published

The College recently published two revised practice standards: Advertising and Communication with the Public and Independent Medical Examinations. Practice standards reflect the minimum standard of professional behaviour and ethical conduct on a specific topic or issue expected by the College of all registrants. Standards also reflect relevant legal requirements and are enforceable under the Health Professions Act.

Revisions to an assessment standard on emergency preparedness

The Physician Practice Enhancement Program develops assessment standards to address key areas that impact a clinical office. The primary goals in developing the standards are to document best practices, requirements and recommendations expected by the College; make information more accessible; make the implementation process easier; and promote consistency across community-based practices.

The College Connector is sent to every current registrant of the College. Decisions of the College on matters of standards and guidelines are contained in this publication. The College therefore assumes that each registrant is aware of these matters. Questions or comments about this publication should be directed to communications@cpsbc.ca.
