Directors of professional services

Concerned by the fact that the legal responsibilities do not accurately reflect the reality of a DPS’s duties, the QMA offers a series of documents proposing a renewed vision of the DPS’s role. While coordinating medical, dental and pharmaceutical affairs remains essential, the tasks of organizing services and managing clinical sectors, running the local services network (RLS) and continuously improving quality are becoming increasingly important in the role of a DPS. Based on the obligations set out in the Act Respecting Health Services and Social Services (LSSSS), different documents present the four roles of the DPS along with the tools developed for the thematic groupings linked to these roles.
