Episode 31: The Continuing Transition to a Single-Mandate Organization
15 December 2021
Change is coming to the College of Physiotherapists of Alberta. In December 2020 the Health Statutes Amendment Act (No. 2) received Royal Assent. Among other things, this piece of legislation requires that regulatory colleges cease to function as professional associations and divest themselves of any association functions.
In this episode, Jody and Leanne discuss the work that has already been done to address the requirements established by the Health Statutes Amendment Act and the changes to come in the months ahead. We highlight the ongoing work to define our regulatory activities in the future, our support of the formation of an association independent of the College of Physiotherapists of Alberta Council and Staff, and address some of the most common questions we have heard from physiotherapists regarding the upcoming changes.
2022 will be a busy and exciting year for physiotherapists and the College of Physiotherapists of Alberta. Check out this episode to hear more about what comes next.
