New and updated DAP position statements available

DAP update


The Diagnostic Accreditation Program (DAP) provides accreditation in a formal and independent manner based on established standards to ensure quality and safety of the facility and/or service is maintained.

The standards are evidence-based, outcome-focused mandatory requirements and best practices that are aligned to the principles of quality. Due to complex or evolving practices, DAP standards sometimes require additional clarification on a particular issue.
This is communicated through position statements.

Position statements provide background information and express or clarify the College’s intent on a particular matter. They serve as guidance in areas where

  • events are evolving or changing rapidly,
  • the implementation of processes and procedures may be premature, or
  • it is timely to communicate the College’s broad intent before or as policies and procedures are developed.

The following new position statements are now available on the College website
