During the past year, the College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of British Columbia conducted a preliminary pilot project for our Quality Assurance & Professional Practice (QAPP) Practice Review module. The pilot has now concluded, and the high-level project summary and recommendations (PDF) have been shared with the pilot participants.
The Board of the College is committed to proceeding with the next phase of practice reviews. This will begin with a screening of all remaining Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioners (RHIPs) who provide clinical services. For those who are dually-registered, this will mean that they will participate in the RHIP screening first. A review of their other registered profession (e.g., audiology) will follow at a later date.
Unlike the pilot phase of the project, only where a RHIP does not successfully pass the screening stage will a follow-up onsite practice review, with a qualified QAPP (RHIP) Assessor, be required.
The details of the next phase of the project will become available to those involved over the next 2-3 months.
