The Legislative Committee has been meeting regularly to discuss and prepare for the Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA) and its impact on physiotherapy practice in Manitoba. It is anticipated that physiotherapists will transition from The Physiotherapists Act to the RHPA in the next two years.
The College of Physiotherapists of Manitoba would now like to host a series of information sessions in order to give Registrants the opportunity to engage in this very important process. Opportunity for discussion will be available at each session following a short presentation. Listed below are the dates of these information sessions as well as the topics that will be discussed at each meeting. Webinars will be recorded and available for viewing on the College’s website after the event.
