Are you curious about what CPSA Council and team members have on the horizon for 2022? Council meetings are open to regulated members and Albertans, and are a great way to learn more about the committees, programs and overall strategic direction of CPSA.
Council’s first meeting of 2022 will take place on Mar. 17 & 18. We’re excited to welcome Dr. Nicole Cardinal following her election in October, as well as Council’s new student observer Chaim Katz. Councillor Dr. Jaelene Mannerfeldt was also re-elected and will sit on Council for another three-year term.
In addition to hearing from Council’s 2022 President Ms. Stacey Strilchuk for her President’s update and CPSA Registrar Dr. Scott McLeod for his Registrar’s update, members of Council will review and vote on CPSA’s revised Continuity of Care standard of practice. Council will also take a look at draft revisions of the Medical Services Requiring Accreditation Outside of Hospitals and Reprocessing Medical Equipment standards that will be open for your feedback during our upcoming Consultation 022, should Council vote in favour of this consultation period.
CPSA’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee will seek approval for a new name that better reflects CPSA’s anti-discrimination and anti-racism work, in addition to a review and vote for approval on the Terms of Reference. Council will also be asked to formally establish a CPSA History Project Committee. The project, approved by Council in May 2021, will review and document our organization’s history.
While March will be Council’s first opportunity to meet in person in over two years, guests are invited to register in advance to listen in virtually. The full meeting agenda and registration form can be found by visiting cpsa.ca/council.
