Today, the Health Standards Organization (HSO) published 60 pages of comprehensive standards to complement the release of 115 pages of standards from the Canadian Standards Association Group (CSA) in December.
This morning, Terry Lake, BCCPA, CEO spoke to the release of the HSO standards. Listen to his interview here on CBC Early Edition with Stephen Quinn.
Lake highlighted the need for investments and funding to support the implementation of the standards, along with the importance of addressing the health human resource crisis.
BCCPA participated robustly in the development of both standards, holding several group consultations to advise on the Association’s feedback and response and sharing additional engagement opportunities with our members.
