Role of the Ethics Committee

Role of CPM’s Ethics Committee

Our committee currently consists of CPM members who have a special interest in ethics and supporting ethical practice.

The mandate of our committee is to:

  1. Identify opportunities for promoting ethical practice in the physiotherapy community (college members) which reflects values of our Code of Ethics.
  2. Provide a forum to encourage reflection and learning about the ethical dimensions of physiotherapy practice.
  3. Discuss and facilitate the application of an ethical lens to the development, revision and implementation of policies and practice directions.

The role of the Ethics Committee is not to judge issues that arise, but rather to provide resources to help guide clinicians to make their own decisions while keeping ethics in mind. Our committee welcomes ideas of ethical issues from the membership and can be reached at
