Dialogue cover for Volume 14, Issue 3


Right Touch Regulation

How much regulatory force is actually needed to achieve a desired effect? That is the question posed by a framework recently adopted by the College.

New Process Offers Effective Resolution

When the College receives a complaint, we always review it carefully before deciding how to proceed. If the matter appears to be a low-risk concern, our new Alternative Dispute Resolution process may be the most suitable process.

Introducing the College’s New President

We sit down for a Q&A with Dr. Peeter Poldre, who discusses how his various roles in health care have prepared him for his year as President.

Redesign of College Policies

We are redesigning our policies to enhance their clarity and readability for physicians.

Medical Advisor Team Grows

Dr. Sheila Laredo has joined the College as Chief Medical Advisor. She will be leading the team of Medical Advisors, which includes the recent additions of Dr. Benjamin Chen and Dr. David Finkelstein.

Election Results for Districts 6, 7, 8 and 9

See who is returning to the Council table and meet the doctor who is a first-time Council member.

Shaping Governance Reform

Over the last several years, there has been an increasing call to modernize the oversight of regulatory bodies. Council is putting forward recommendations for change to ensure the College has a role in shaping reform.

New Reporting Requirements for MAID

New federal reporting regulations for monitoring medical assistance in dying are in effect. We explain what the new rules mean for you.
