Health regulatory Colleges exist to protect the public interest.
To help the public understand how well Colleges are doing their job and to help continually improve accountability, transparency and oversight, all Colleges are reporting on their work in the College Performance Measurement Framework (CPMF) Reporting Tool.
This new tool was developed by the Ministry of Health, together with Ontario’s health regulatory Colleges, subject matter experts and the public.
The CPMF covers a wide variety of topics, like how Colleges:
- perform as an organisation,
- register applicants,
- measure practice improvement of regulated health professionals, and
- process complaints about their Registrants.
This CPMF provides information on how Colleges work with external partners, such as other regulatory Colleges, educational programs and the broader healthcare system to improve public protection.
The CPMF also shares raw data about Ontario’s regulated health professionals and their participation in practice improvement. There is data about the number of complaints and the type of those complaints, and how many health professionals participated in practice improvement activities. Finally, the CPMF details each College’s commitment to making improvements over the next year, giving clear action/improvement plans.
The College will update this report annually, noting any progress on areas identified for improvement or adding new or updated information required by the Ministry of Health. These reports are one of the many ways Colleges demonstrate their commitment to the public’s interest for the people of Ontario.
