Two new CMTBC Standards of Practice – the Evidence-Based Practice standard and Scope of Practice standard – went into effect January 15, 2024.
The Evidence-Based Practice standard sets clear expectations for how RMTs incorporate an evidence-based practice approach into their practice. The Scope of Practice standard sets clear expectations for RMTs on the activities that they are educated and authorized to perform.
Changes to the Consent Standard of Practice, reflecting a requirement for RMTs to communicate with patients in a manner that incorporates an evidence-based approach, also went into effect January 15, 2024.
The Indigenous Cultural Safety, Humility, and Anti-Racism (ICSHAR) Standard of Practice, announced in September 2023, went into effect January 1, 2024. The ICSHAR standard sets clear expectations for how RMTs are to provide culturally safe and anti-racist care for Indigenous patients.
