Revised Virtual Care practice standard published

The previously titled Telemedicine practice standard has undergone major revisions based on an extensive consultation with registrants (376 specialists and 889 family practitioners), 379 members of the public, and numerous key health partners. Following this consultation, the newly titled Virtual Care practice standard has been reviewed and revised by the Patient Relations, Professional Standards and Ethics (PRPSE) committee and approved for publication by the College’s Executive Committee. Along with the updated practice standard, a short video outlining the changes to the standard, and a revised Virtual Care: What to Expect patient resource have been published.
