​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Action Plan Progress Report

November 29, 2019

CDSBC continues to deliver on our 32-item Action Plan submitted to the Minister of Health. The Action Plan was created in response to a formal directive from the Minister in response to Harry Cayton's performance review of CDSBC. The Action Plan reflects CDSBC's commitment to the safety of patients and the public, and to strong governance, transparency and accountabilit​y.​

Highlights of our recent progress on the Action Plan are below, and a full report on the progress is available as a PDF here >>​

Promoting independence from influence of professional organizations, including new requirements for el​ection eligibility, and a published register of interests for board members

​Inviting public and registrant participation at board meetings and at the AGM
What's next

Fewer committees, and new committees for patient relations and standards and guidance

Improving patient experience by analyzing feedback from people who make complaints

Identifying specific competencies that board members should have, and building those into the eligibility requirements for board elections
