“How well are Ontario’s regulatory health colleges protecting the public interest?”
That’s what the Ontario Ministry of Health hoped to answer when it developed the College Performance Measurement Framework (CPMF).
To continually improve accountability, transparency and oversight, all colleges are using the CPMF Reporting Tool.
It covers how colleges:
- perform as an organization;
- register applicants;
- measure practice improvement of regulated health professionals;
- process complaints about their registrants;
- work with external partners (such as other regulatory colleges, educational programs and the broader healthcare system) to improve public protection;
- participate in practice improvement activities; and
- commit to making improvements over the next year, with clear action plans.
Colleges will update this report annually, noting any progress on areas identified for improvement or adding new information required by the Ministry of Health. The CPMF is one of the many ways colleges demonstrate their commitment to the public interest.
Using the CPMF as a driver of quality will allow CDHO to focus its improvement and development efforts.
