Practice Education Checklist Report
The "Building Quality in Practice Education: Self-Assessment Checklist for Corporate Leaders in Health Authorities" was developed in 2007 by the British Columbia Academic Health Council. It supports a comprehensive assessment of practice education infrastructure and processes for quality review, planning and improvement. The checklist was completed in 2015 by nine Saskatchewan RHAs and the provincial cancer agency, to assist in identifying common priorities for the development of a provincial practice education strategy.
