Neurophysiology Testing

Good Medical Practice – It’s What We’re All About


Neurophysiology testing accreditation standards ensure patient safety and quality care in facilities performing EEG, Tele-EEG, EMG and EP.

The College accredits private and public neurophysiology facilities where diagnostic tests are interpreted by CPSA members.

Neurophysiology Standards & Guidelines

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 Neurophysiology labs meet or exceed safety and quality standards for the performance of EEG, EMG and EP.
