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.

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.
