Interprofessional Guide on the Use of Orders, Directives and Delegations for Regulated Health Professionals in Ontario

This guide has been developed to address questions regarding the use of orders and delegation to facilitate interprofessional care by health professionals practicing in any setting across the province. It has been developed as a consensus document by the Federation of Health Regulatory Colleges of Ontario and is designed to complement and assist with fulfilling guidelines, standards and regulations developed by each health profession college. For specifics and questions pertaining to each profession, refer to the respective college.

The guide is based on a framework of the fundamental cornerstones of health professional practice: patient interest and public protection achieved by regulated health professionals practicing independently and in teams in accordance with regulatory and legislative expectations for practice.
