Reinitiating the TAP, TERMS OF REFERENCE 2015 TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE
It is the position of the OAA that there are critical issues that need a systematic and thoughtful review by the ACT community within Ontario, and accordingly we are reconstituting a variation of the former TAP in order to provide key and useful information to the OAA executive and membership, to the Ministry of Health as it weighs allocation and service model questions, and to LHINS as they explore possible evolution in ACT service standards and models.
