Two new assessment standards on emergency preparedness for internal medicine specialists and pediatricians

In consultation with Physician Practice Enhancement Program (PPEP) assessors and medical advisors, PPEP has drafted two new assessment standards:

 

 

  1. Emergency Preparedness for Staff and Patients in an Internal Medicine Clinical Office to provide direction and guidance specifically for emergency preparedness of internal medicine specialists practising in the clinical office setting.

    Registrants are invited to review the draft standard here and provide feedback here by March 4, 2020.
     
  2. Emergency Preparedness for Staff and Patients in a Pediatric Clinical Office to provide direction and guidance specifically for emergency preparedness of pediatricians practising in the clinical office setting.

    Registrants are invited to review the draft standard here and provide feedback here by March 4, 2020.

These two documents are based on the original PPEP assessment standard titled Emergency Preparedness for the General Practitioner in a Clinical Office that was published in April 2017. The documents were reviewed and approved by the Physician Practice Enhancement Panel in June 2019.
