On August 15, 2016, the Board approved quality assurance (QA) bylaw amendments to support introduction of prescription review and to strengthen data confidentiality for both prescription review and multi-source feedback (MSF):
This section will be repealed.
As required by the Health Professions Act (HPA), notice of these proposed bylaw amendments is published on the CRNBC website and has also been given to the Ministry of Health and the other colleges established under the HPA.
Amendments to most bylaws are subject to a three-month notice period, unless the Minister of Health specifies a shorter period. All bylaw amendments must be filed with the Minister to be effective. Filed bylaw changes come into force 60 days after the date of filing, unless the Minister either disallows the change or specifies an earlier date, or the college withdraws the change.
CRNBC intends to request the Minister of Health approve both a shorter notice period and an early in-force date for these amendments, to align with the scheduled Fall 2016 roll-out of the next phase in the MSF component of CRNBC's QA program.
Please submit comments on these proposed amendments to the attention of the Governance Coordinator no later than
Sept. 20, 2016.
Comments may also be submitted directly to the Ministry of Health.
