An Interprofessional Guide on the Use of Orders, Directives and Delegation for Regulated Health Professionals in Ontario
The Federation of Health Regulatory Colleges of Ontario has developed a guide to address questions, variances and confusion regarding the use of orders – direct orders and medical directives – and delegation across all professions and practice settings in the province to facilitate interprofessional care in accordance with regulatory and legislative requirements. It is designed to complement and assist with fulfilling guidelines, standards and regulations developed by health profession Colleges. The guide is based on a framework of the fundamental cornerstones of health professional practice: public protection and patient safety achieved through regulated health professions practising independently and interdependently in accordance with expectations of professional practice.
