Episode 38: Understanding Mandatory Reporting
15 July 2022
Speakers: Leanne Loranger, Jody Prohar, Moyra McAllister
In this episode we discuss the legal requirement for mandatory reporting to the College, and the scenarios where this requirement is triggered.
The College exists to protect the public. There are instances where an employer who is ending an employment relationship needs to make the College aware of performance concerns that may indicate that a physiotherapist is unable to meet the requirements of the Standards of Practice. There are also instances when a physiotherapist is required to report a criminal conviction or court finding of professional negligence. Failing to make a report when one is mandated by legislation can carry consequences.
Do you know the situations where you are required to report an issue or legal matter to the College? Listen to this episode to learn more.
