Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Good Medical Practice – It’s What We’re All About
ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Under the Health Professions Act, the College is responsible for ensuring patient safety and quality care in Alberta’s Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) facilities by setting standards for all aspects of quality and operations.
We conduct on-site assessments when facilities open and reassess on a four-year cycle. We also reassess if a facility adds a new service, renovates, moves or a concern is brought forward.
Upcoming Meeting Dates:
The Non-Hospital Surgical Facility (NHSF) Advisory Committee oversees the College's HBOT accreditation program. The committee meets several time a year to review assessment results and recommend accreditation status for labs, review the standards and approve physician applications to interpret or direct hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

About our standards
CPSA accreditation standards are developed based on input from field experts, best practice and research identified by other regulators, standard setting bodies and industry associations. These standards ensure Alberta’s HBOT facilities meet or exceed safety and quality standards for the performance of HBOT services.
