Quality Assurance Program

All occupational therapists must participate in the Quality Assurance (QA) program.

The purpose of the Quality Assurance program is:

  • to measure occupational therapists’ knowledge and performance to ensure they are meeting the Competencies and Standards for Practice.
  • to support registrants’ improved practice by providing coaching, tools and resources, and feedback
  • to assist registrants to improve their skills so they can provide safe, effective, ethical care.

    The Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 requires the College to have a Quality Assurance program to support the mandate to protect the public.

The Quality Assurance program includes: annual requirements, competency assessment, peer and practice assessment.
