OAC Expertise: A Source of Clinical Expertise in Public Policy Development
The OAC is recognized by the Ontario government and its agencies as an important source of clinical expertise in the public policy development process. Throughout 2017-18, the OAC was called upon to provide clinical experts to assist in the following initiatives led by agencies of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care:
- Remote Cardiac Monitoring Health Technology Assessment
- Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) Health Technology Assessment
- Heart Failure Care in the Community Quality Standard
The OAC welcomes these consultation opportunities with the Ontario government to ensure that provincial public policies reflect sound cardiac clinical practice.
