QUALITY ASSURANCE THROUGH COMPETENT & ETHICAL OPTICIANRY SERVICES
Rapid changes in health care technology, research, and healthcare consumer expectations challenges the profession to constantly maintain quality of care. Licensed Opticians need to be aware of new techniques and knowledge that may impact eye care or the services they render to clients. In addition, the public has a right to expect that registered health professionals continually demonstrate proficiency in their chosen field and are not relying on knowledge that was gained when they first entered the profession.

The Health Professions Act requires each Health Regulatory Organization to develop and administer a Quality Assurance Program to assure the quality of the practice of the profession and to promote continuing competence among the members. Currently, the College supports Licensed Opticians in maintaining acceptable ethics, standards, and competence through guidelines and mandatory continuing education (MCE) for both practicing and non-practicing registrants.
