Standards of Practice

On June 20, 2019, Council approved drafts for 4 standards of practice. Please click the links below to review the standards:

These standards will replace the Standard for Prohibition of a Sexual Relationship with a Patient, the Standard for Communication and the Standard for Safe Practice.

Key Features

Every standard has an introduction and a set of principles. Principles inform members of their accountabilities and the public of what to expect. Each principle also contains corresponding record-keeping responsibilities.


Council is seeking feedback from members and key stakeholders on these drafts. Feedback can be provided by completing each standard’s survey. This will take about 15 minutes to complete and can be resumed at any time.

All responses will be reviewed and will remain anonymous. A summary of the results will be posted online following the close of the consultation.

You can provide your responses anytime before September 10, 2019. The consultation period will close after this date.
