Proposed College of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Health Professionals of BC [CDTHPBC]
“These are exciting times for the Ministry of Health and medical imaging and laboratory technologists. Working together with BCSLS and the BCAMRT, the Cardiology Technologists Association of BC, the BC Ultra-sonographers Society and the BC Society of Respiratory Therapists, we are moving towards a new self-regulating college for the approximately 8,500 diagnostic and therapeutic health professionals in British Columbia.”
“This important shift towards a new college represents a commitment by the Ministry of Health to ensure the highest quality of patient care is provided and that proper supports for this vital group of health professionals are in place. It will also provide the public with a body they may contact with concerns and will help to improve collaboration between the five partner organizations.” Click here for full letter
