Calling All Ontario Physicians - Provide Input Into Continuity of Care Guidelines
The CPSO is calling for feedback on any or all the content within the Continuity of Care suite.
What is Continuity of Care? According to the CPSO, it is
"an essential component of patient-centered care. Test results that are delayed or missed, limited physician availability and accessibility, receiving care in an uncoordinated manner, and transitions in care all create the potential for breakdowns in continuity of care that may negatively impact patient health outcomes and the quality of care provided."
For nearly two years, the CPSO has been developing new policies relating to Continuity of Care. This will be a revision to the Test Results Management policy. Many stakeholders have been consulted in the development process. Now, the CPSO is soliciting feedback from its members, you the physicians.
This is your opportunity to provide comments on the draft policies. Put another way, it's your chance to shape future policy and assist in setting the standards expected of all physicians across Ontario.
Follow this link to find all of the draft policies that you can review and upon which you can provide your thoughtful feedback.
