Notification of Bylaw Amendment โ€“ Non-Hospital Medical and Surgical Facilities Program

In 2016, the College Board set out a strategic direction for the revision of the Non-Hospital Medical and Surgical Facilities Program Bylaws. The focus of the revisions includes: strengthening the role of the facility medical directors, enhancing continuity of care, separating the accreditation of new and existing facilities, and increasing public access to information.

In February 2017, the College posted the proposed amended Bylaws on its website giving registrants and other interested parties the opportunity to review and comment. The feedback received during the consultation period was comprehensive and constructive, leading to further changes and clarification.

While most of the changes are minor, involving language edits to increase clarity in certain sections, two are considered substantive.
