Medical director standard now on the College website

The NHMSFP Committee is pleased to announce the posting of the medical director standard for private medical/surgical facilities in British Columbia. In 2015, the committee recognized that medical directors would benefit from tools and resources to carry out the duties required of them, as set out in the Bylaws; in particular a medical director's responsibilities for privileging and credentialing of medical staff and for reporting and reviewing patient safety incidents. 

This standard was developed to support and ultimately strengthen the role of the medical director. To view the standard, click here.
