The Health Professions Regulatory Advisory Council is reviewing inter-professional collaboration among health professions in the eye care sector in order to provide advice to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care. This review will include research and analysis, engagement of those with an interest in the issues, jurisdictional, literature and jurisprudence reviews, and written submissions from interveners.
The College was invited by HPRAC to provide input on two occasions. Copies of the College's submissions are below. HPRAC has indicated that it is planning to provide its recommendations to the Minister on or before March 31, 2010. It is then up to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care to determine when those recommendations are released to the public. Once HPRAC's recommendations are released, the College Council will consider whether or not further amendments to the proposed Conflict of Interest Regulations are appropriate.
