The Health Professions Review Board (HPRB) is an independent, quasi-judicial administrative tribunal created under the Health Professions Act.
A complainant who is not satisfied with a complaint outcome in an Inquiry Committee disposition can request that the HPRB review the outcome. The HPRB may conduct a review of the adequacy of the investigation and the reasonableness of the disposition. A complainant can also request a review of failure by an Inquiry Committee to dispose of a complaint within the required time. An application for review must be made within 30 days from the date written notice of the disposition is delivered to the complainant.
A registrant – current or potential – may request a review of certain registration decisions by a college, such as refusal of a grant of registration. An application for review must be made within 30 days from the date written notice of the registration decision is delivered to the registrant (current or potential).
The HPRB also helps to improve the health care system and serve the public interest in British Columbia by developing and publishing guidelines and recommendations to assist colleges for registration, inquiry, and discipline procedures that are transparent, objective, impartial, and fair.
