What are the 3 most important initiatives you would like to champion as a CUHMA BOD member?

I am asking for your vote for re-election as a member-at-large of the CUHMA board of directors (BoD). I bring to the board extensive clinical experience in hyperbaric medicine spanning more than 10 years and established relationships with hyperbaric professionals across the country. In my current term on the BOD, I have been actively involved in decision-making at the organization and have worked to develop national clinical practice guidelines. If re-elected, I will focus my work at the BOD on the following initiatives: development and completion of clinical practice guidelines; working with the Royal College on hyperbaric competency assessment; development and protection of the CUHMA brand; and the adoption of hyperbaric facility standards.
