COVID-19 Information for Members regarding Audits and NHMSC/Area/WRHA Standards Committees

Any audits currently being planned by the Standards Department will be postponed out of respect for the increased demands on physicians.    Anyone involved in a Standards audit (members and auditors) will receive an e-mail from the Standards Department.  Postponed audits will be rescheduled to a time when the health care system has recovered.
