Under the Medical Act 2011, the College is responsible for the promotion of continuing competence and quality improvement through continuing medical education as well as the administration of a quality assurance program.
The Quality Assurance section of the College website will include all the College's activities to promote quality assurance, revalidation, as described in section 29 of the Medical Act 2011, and the Quality Assurance committee. Revalidation and the QA committee both come into force on December 31, 2011.
That means continuing professional development initiatives and information on professional certification will still be here along with information on topics like the Personal Health Information Act, methadone maintenance, and the use of opioids to treat chronic non-cancer pain.
In addition, the College will be adding more information about the revalidation program and the Quality Assurance Committee as the information becomes available.
