More information about the Quality Assurance Process is available in the Health Professions Act (2010).

Quality Assurance Program and Quality Assurance Committee

Under Section 21. (1) of the Health Professions Act (2010), the NLCHP must establish and maintain a quality assurance program to promote the high standards of practice within each health profession to which the Act applies.

The Council works with the designated health professional colleges who establish the requirements for entry to practice, continuing education, minimum standards of work/practice hours and continuing competency.

The Quality Assurance (QA) Program is proactive and supports early intervention to prevent a practice issue from escalating to conduct deserving of a sanction.

A quality assurance review of a registered health professional or his or her practice may be initiated by a Quality Assurance (QA) Committee, the Registrar or by the Complaints Authorization Committee (CAC). The QA Committee may make orders to address a practice issue

During the review, it may be identified that the registered health professional may be guilty of conduct deserving of sanction. In this case, the QA Committee will terminate its review and the matter will be referred to the CAC.
