In 2013, the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer and the Canadian Association of Pathologists – Association canadienne des pathologistes came together to improve the quality of interpretive pathology practice in Canada.
In 2016, this initiative led to the release of pan-Canadian recommendations to improve the quality of interpretive pathology practice in Canada. The framework is the first of its kind in Canada, and acts as an informational and decision-making resource to guide jurisdictions in incorporating recommendations into new and existing quality programs.
These recommendations aim to enhance patient safety by promoting better and more consistent pathology quality assurance processes across the country.
