QAP: The Facts

Posted Date: February 11, 2021

The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is a vital way in which the College fulfills its mandate to regulate the profession of dental hygiene in the public interest. The College is aware that there are conversations taking place regarding the QAP, particularly in relation to the new version of the assessment tool. Many of the comments we have heard contain false and inaccurate information. As such, we have put together a document titled QAP: The Facts to respond to the comments and provide the facts. We encourage all registrants to ensure they are aware of the facts and remember their responsibilities as a regulated health care professional when considering the QAP.
