Practice Reviews

The Practice Review module of the Quality Assurance and Professional Practice (QAPP) program is administered in two stages: screening and assessment. Only aspects of the CSHBC Standards of Practice that are prescriptive (i.e., ‘must dos’) rather than permissive (‘may dos’) are included in the screening process.

When a registrant does not successfully pass the screening, a follow-up onsite practice review with a qualified QAPP Assessor is required. All onsite practice reviews are strictly confidential and between the College and the registrant. Employers may not participate, observe, or receive outcome results from onsite practice reviews. Registrants will be required to meet any planned remediation activities within the timeline established with the Assessor.

Practice reviews are based on the CSHBC standards of practice and related decision support tools.  See Registrant Resources for more information on all applicable standards of practice and related documents.

All regulated health professionals in BC have a duty to comply with their respective quality assurance program under a college’s bylaws and provisions of the Health Professions Act. If a CSHBC registrant refuses to comply with a QAPP practice review as provided for in the Bylaws, the QAPP Committee must refer the matter to the College’s Inquiry Committee for investigation.
