SPECIAL BULLETIN – CHANGES TO THE REGULATED HEALTH PROFESSIONS ACT, 1991 (RHPA)1
Effective May 1, 2018, there were significant amendments made to the law relating to patients as reflected in the Protecting Patients Act, 2017, which amends the RHPA.
CCO brings the following amendments to your attention:
In anticipation of these changes, CCO previously circulated approved amendments to:
- By-law 17: Public Register (to include the new requirements and to be posted following the June 20, 2018 CCO Council meeting).
There continues to be no spousal exemption to the sexual abuse provisions of the RHPA. There will be notification to stakeholders including members if this changes.
Please monitor the CCO website for the most up-to-date information concerning regulations, standards of practice, policies, guidelines and by-laws. Thank you for your ongoing interest in and attention to the self-regulation of the chiropractic profession in Ontario.
The law governs to the extent of any inconsistency with this bulletin.
