Nature of Action: An undertaking and consent of the registrant under section 33(6)(c) of the Health Professions Act. The registrant undertook to successfully complete a course on professional practice and to pay to the College a portion of the costs of the investigation into this matter in the amount of $250.
Reasons: A complaint was made to the College by a former patient of the registrant, who alleged that the registrant engaged in inappropriate communications during a massage therapy appointment and that this made the former patient uncomfortable.
The registrant admitted to having committed professional misconduct by speaking to the former patient about the details of a date that she went on, while providing the former patient with massage therapy.
By engaging in the admitted conduct, the registrant has violated several sections of the CMTBC’s Code of Ethical Conduct and the Standards of Practice, which amounts to professional misconduct.
