Speakers: Jody Prohar and Leanne Loranger

When you think about the College’s past messaging about its role – that it exists to safeguard and serve the public interest and receives its mandate from the Government of Alberta, on some level it’s understandable that physiotherapists might ask, “if that’s the case, why am I footing the bill?”

In this conversation, Jody and Leanne address the age-old question of “what’s in it for me?” when it comes to regulation. Along the way, they discuss the contract that exists between government and regulated health professionals, different regulatory models, and the concept of co-regulation. They touch on the benefits physiotherapists gain through regulation and what could potentially occur if the profession was not regulated.

Being a regulated health professional offers benefits but it also demands that we work to continually raise the bar for ourselves and those around us.  Albertans deserve a physiotherapy profession that is accountable and that serves the public’s interests.

Listen to this episode to learn more about the benefits and obligations of being a regulated health professional.
