Webinar 1: February 23, 2023 - Protecting your patients using professional boundaries

The College of Chiropractors of Alberta (CCOA) is hosting a webinar on professional boundaries with Dr. Dean Wright, Chief Executive Officer, Canadian Chiropractic Protective Association (CCPA) and CCOA Registrar Dr. Todd Halowski on February 23, 2023, 12-1 p.m.

Professional boundary complaints have increased for all professions in all jurisdictions. It is safe to say no one wants to face the challenges that come from complaints or claims, be it the patient or the chiropractor.

Maintaining professional boundaries is the responsibility of the chiropractor. It is an essential part of your practice to ensure the safety of your patients. Violations of professional boundaries result in trauma for the patient and complaints, investigations, discipline, liabilities or/and legal issues for the chiropractor. In this webinar, Dr. Wright and Dr. Halowski will discuss the trends in violations and provide practical advice that chiropractors can use to ensure professional boundaries are maintained.

Each participant who attends the live webinar will earn one credit. The credit will be applied by CCOA to each Members’ Profile. The webinar will be archived for future viewing but will not be eligible for credit.
