We ensure that certified members are accountable to the highest standards of practice through our certification of members and facilities, the monitoring of continued competency and the enforcement of ethical conduct.
COVID-19 Recommendation for The College of Pedorthic of Canada Members
Dear CPC Member,
At a time when all provinces have introduced plans to reopen businesses The College of Pedorthics of Canada (CPC) fully supports the return to practice for Certified Pedorthist (Canada) (C. Ped (C)), Certified Pedorthist Master Craftsman (C. Ped MC), Certified Orthopaedic Footwear Specialist (COFS), and Certified Pedorthic Technician (C. Ped Tech (C)) while adhering to your provincial directions. As a national organization we cannot override provincial regulations, and as such, all CPC members must refer to their provincial guidelines first for best business practices and guidelines for reopening. For current and reliable information from reputable sources, please refer to the Public Health Agency of Canada, World Health Organization, and your province’s health agency.
The College of Pedorthics of Canada, and the Pedorthic Association of Canada (PAC) in a joint effort worked with DEM Solutions to create guidelines for clinicians that are starting to re-open their practices. These guidelines are intended to provide you with a framework for key considerations and relevant global best practices as you operate your business in today’s challenging environment. These guidelines are not intended to replace local health and government guidelines and have not been mandated by either CPC or PAC.
It is also essential that in these difficult times, CPC members continue to operate within their scope of practice and follow the code of ethics and standards of practice. Thank you for practicing responsibly, and your continued support in building and protecting the profession of pedorthics in Canada.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
