In March 2018, the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario held a session to update its inaugural strategic plan.
The overarching aim of the day was to establish strategic priorities and key activities over the next 3+ years.
The group agreed to make strategic decisions about future priorities based on three criteria:
The College established four strategic directions with key activities, and recognizes seven organizational values that would help the College deliver on its mandate to regulate the profession in the public interest.
Ensuring policies and practices are consistent with good governance and adaptable to changes in the regulatory environment
Ensuring practitioners are able to effectively work in collaborative environments and competent to deliver safe, effective and ethical care
Enhancing information and communications to ensure ongoing effectiveness in understanding or participating in College activities and processes
Enhancing the public’s awareness and knowledge of TCM to ensure they seek and access appropriate services from a regulated TCM practitioner and/or acupuncturist
The section below provides a summary update of the College’s progress on strategic plan items for the 2021-2022 fiscal year (starting April 1, 2021). This section will be updated quarterly (current as of December 9, 2021).
