Boundaries and Friendships: Where's the Line? 

Starting this fall the College will be on the road visiting communities around the province to connect with physiotherapists, students, employers and physiotherapist assistants. This year, we'd like to have a discussion with you about boundaries.

How can physios best protect patients and themselves?
What if a patient makes unwanted advances toward you?
What should you do if you find yourself attracted to a patient?
How can you maintain appropriate boundaries with your colleagues? 

Much has changed in the past year with the growing #MeToo movement and the introduction of Bill 87—as a result this has become a key topic of discussion for our Practice Advice team. The sessions will be hosted by Fiona Campbell, Senior Physiotherapist Advisor.

The discussions will address questions and concerns physiotherapists often face in practice, and highlight some real examples that we have encountered. Not only will we focus on your professional obligations but we will also tackle how to address situations in which a patient or colleague may have crossed a boundary. What are the rules? What can you do to protect yourself? How can we help?

The dates, locations and times for the community events are listed below. Please monitor this list as dates and locations may change, and details will be added as they become available. We will also host a webinar for anyone who is unable to attend in person.

Sandwiches, cookies, and refreshments will be provided at all in person sessions.
