QAP Assessment Tool

The QAP Assessment Tool is an online, assessment tool that is to be completed by all registrants once every five years. It was designed specifically to meet the requirement under the Health Professions Act for an assessment of registrants’ practice quality, as well as to provide useful feedback to registrants regarding their current knowledge of foundational dental hygiene competencies.

Results of the QAP Assessment Tool will be incorporated into the registrant's Online Learning Plan  and will inform their guided learning process. The QAP Assessment Tool is completed at the start of the five-year QAP cycle, during January or February. Completion of the QAP Assessment Tool is a mandatory requirement and the first attempt must be completed before registration renewal will be permitted; the renewal deadline is the last day of February.

The following documents contain more information about the Assessment Tool and will be updated in the coming months with the development of the new 2021 QAP Assessment Tool:
