Seeking public feedback on expectations of how physicians and surgeons manage test results

The College is currently in the process of creating a practice standard that outlines how a physician or surgeon manages tests and test results. Ordering and following up on tests is a common and important part of patient care. It is important for physicians and surgeons to manage tests, and for patients to know why tests are important for their health.

The College is seeking public input to learn about the experiences and expectations patients have in relation to physicians and surgeons managing test results.

This feedback will help shape the College’s practice standard, Managing Tests, and determine whether a separate patient resource may be necessary.

Share your feedback by completing this short survey before June 29, 2022.
