CONSULTATIONS Have Your Say WWW.CPSO.ON.CA Open Consultations The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario values your feedback on policies, regulations, by-laws and other initiatives that are in development, and we invite you to participate in our open consultations. Complementary/Alternative Medicine Policy We are seeking your input on the current Complementary/Alternative Medicine (CAM) policy, which sets out expectations for physicians who practise CAM, who don’t offer CAM but have patients who pursue CAM, or who wish to have professional affiliations with CAM clinics, therapies, or devices. Delegation of Controlled Acts Policy We are seeking your input on the current Delegation of Controlled Acts policy, which sets out expectations for physicians about when and how they may delegate controlled acts, through either direct orders or medical directives. The policy sets out guiding principles to help determine appropriate circumstances for delegation and includes expectations related to quality assurance and ensuring the ongoing competence of any delegate. The deadline to provide feedback is May 6, 2019. www.cpso.on.ca/Consultations The feedback received through these consultations will be reviewed and considered in light of the College’s mandate to protect the public. We value your feedback and thank you for participating in these policy reviews. ISSUE 1, 2019 DIALOGUE 17
