Addressing Quality of Care
December 2022
By Dr. Carmel Overli-Domes, Senior Medical Advisor
Leaving Practice

Thinking of leaving practice?  Retiring?  Relocating?  Other?

What needs to be considered?

* Timely and appropriate notification – who, when, how?

* Continuity of care for patients

* Medical records – disposition?  storage?  management?  access?


The College’s POLICY: Physicians Leaving Practice sets out the expectations of the CPSS.  This was adopted by Council in June of 2022.

Make sure to review - CPSS Leaving Practice: A guide for Physicians and Surgeons.

The CMPA offers some helpful advice: Closing or leaving a practice.


If you have further questions, please contact the CPSS for guidance.
