Good Medical Practice – It’s What We’re All About
ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Vestibular testing accreditation standards ensure patient safety and quality care in facilities performing this service. The College accredits private vestibular testing facilities where diagnostic tests are interpreted by CPSA members.
Upcoming Meeting Dates:
The Advisory Committee on Neurophysiology oversees the College's accreditation of facilities performing vestibular testing. The committee meets twice a year to review assessment results and recommend accreditation status for labs, review the standards and approve physician applications to interpret or direct vestibular testing.
