Dictionary review hub

The provincial privileging dictionaries are live documents and will be adapted as needed to reflect new practices or technologies.

The original privileging dictionaries were developed by more than 300 BC medical professionals and specialty experts. Changes to the dictionaries will occur in iterative cycles of review and refresh. This page features current dictionary refresh activities.
