NOTE REGARDING STANDARD OF PRACTICE 3.1.6: At the 77th Council meeting held on Friday, October 3, 2014, Council revoked Standard of Practice 3.1.6 Anti-Snoring Devices and corresponding appendix D for 3.1.6 Anti-Snoring Appliances as there are a number of inconsistent statements contained in Standard of Practice 3.1.6. 

Important Notice: Members   who choose to undertake to fit and dispense anti-snoring devices should only  do so with the requisite inter-professional health care collaboration, knowledge, skill and training. You must determine whether this is within your personal scope of practice, i.e. are you competent to provide this service?
