New Standard of Practice: Exercise Cardiac Stress Testing
The Standard of Practice Exercise Cardiac Stress Testing is effective June 1, 2022.
The Standard applies to practitioners supervising and interpreting the testing and medical directors of facilities where the testing occurs. This includes any facility performing exercise cardiac stress testing, whether it is in hospitals, Health Authorities, private non-hospital medical or surgical facilities, or any clinics. It establishes the minimum requirements and qualifications for those members involved in this kind of testing.
The Working Group consisted of cardiologists from the community's private facilities and those working in hospitals and health authorities. The Medical Director of the WRHA Cardiac Sciences Program was also a member of the Working Group.
