How Recent Bylaw Changes Affect Your Practice

Did you know that the bylaws include several important rules that guide how we regulate our profession? As our road map for self-regulation the bylaws contain rules about how the profession registers occupational therapists, sets standards, supports and monitors quality practice, and addresses complaints. 

Some of these are quite specific such as what titles we can use, clients’ access to our records, and marketing. On October 2, 2017 our new bylaws were approved by government and contain several changes you need to know about.
By watching this webinar you will be able to identify changes to the COTBC Bylaws, and apply these changes to your own occupational therapy practice.

Presenter: Kathy Corbett, COTBC Registrar/CEO
