with your colleagues

Join us as we hear from the co-Chairs of CAPHC's work in interfacility critical care transport, Kate Mahon and Dr. Allan DeCaen, who will take us on the journey from a conference session in 2008 to what is now a partnership and ongoing work with Accreditation Canada as well as the potential to establish a new network for transport practitioners and administrators.   

We will also welcome Stephanie Carpenter from Accreditation Canada to talk about how this work was translated into new standards within the Qmentum accreditation program, and how organizations can best position themselves to meet these new standards.

We hope you will join us to share you feedback and your questions.
