Medical Review: – Confirmation Tests and Medical Review:

Medical Review Officers must be licensed physicians with knowledge of substance use, misuse, and abuse, as well as meet a number of other certification requirements. They are fully aware of some of the nuances contained in the Canadian health care system. For example, certain drugs requiring a prescription in the U.S. may be purchased without one in Canada.

The MRO is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the testing process. He or she verifies and validates lab test documentation and results, offers specimen donors the opportunity to provide a valid medical explanation for non-negative results and reviews relevant medical information. Following the MRO review, the MRO provides the final interpretation of the test results, known as the MRO determination and reports that determination to Partners Addictions Services.

Express Shipping: Specimens are sent by courier to the lab and chain-of-custody is secure. There is an extra charge for this shipping.
