Medical Directives

Review and Acknowledgment of Medical Directives

Physicians are required by legislation to sign off initially and if there is a significant change on Medical Directives for which they are deemed to be responsible. To meet the requirement, Lakeridge Health uses a process that links authorization of Medical Directives relevant to your practice to your annual reapplication. The following statement has been included to the Declaration Section of the Reapplication Form:

I have reviewed and acknowledge the Medical Directives for which I am an authorizing physician.

A comprehensive list of all Medical Directives categorized by practice groups is included below. Legacy RVHS Medical Directives can be found on the WAVE.

New Medical Directive for 2023/24:

Going forward, we encourage physician participation in the ongoing revision, and development of both existing and new medical directives.  Should you have any recommendations please contact your section chief, program director, or Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee representative.  We strive for Medical Directives to reflect evidence based best practices.  Your input is welcomed and appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance.
