The CTS has a wide range of clinical assemblies that allow members to engage in the development of:

  • Evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and knowledge translation tools
  • Position statements and standards
  • Educational programs and advocacy initiatives

The Assembly Model was revised in 2018 to create more a representative steering committee structure and to increase member engagement.
