CPM has chosen a program which supports a physiotherapists efforts to demonstrate continuing competence through establishing yearly goals and completing a Practice Reflection Submission, promoting continuing education, and random practice audit selection rather than a Quality Assurance Program whereby a physiotherapist would be required to prove his/her competence by undertaking a comprehensive written exam every few years (as done in another province).

It is widely accepted that a single tool that provides reliable, valid, and cost-effective measure of clinical competence does not exist, therefore a combination of evaluation methods is needed. A review of other colleges and disciplines reveals similar programs in place or to be launched across Canada.
