The new Quality Assurance Peer and Practice Program Assessments were successfully completed earlier this year. The College began the assessments in January 2020 and 10% of membership were randomly selected to be assessed.
The peer and practice assessments are required for all health regulated professions in accordance with the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991. These assessments allow members to demonstrate their professional knowledge, skills and judgment with a peer assessor.
Based on the feedback received from assessors, and members who were assessed, the College will make small revisions to the program. These revisions will be presented to the Quality Assurance Committee for approval in September.
The next round of assessments will begin in January 2021. More details will be announced later this year.
