Alberta Health Minister Tyler Shandro has directed the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta to change its standards of practice for physicians by July 20 in an attempt to stop the province's doctors from leaving their practices en masse due to an ongoing dispute over pay.

"The standards do not go far enough to protect patients, particularly in rural or smaller communities," Shandro said in a bluntly worded June 18 letter, released at a CPSA meeting Wednesday.

"Patients in these communities should not have to face an entire group of physicians withdrawing services."
