CMTBC Standards of Practice

CMTBC Standards of Practice define the minimum level of expected performance for RMTs, and therefore define what constitutes safe, ethical, and competent delivery of care by RMTs.

Approved Standards of Practice are in the following areas:

  • Boundaries: RMTs are required to set and maintain appropriate professional boundaries with each patient. Read the Boundaries page.
  • Consent: RMTs are required to obtain informed consent to treatment. Obtaining consent is both a professional and legal obligation. Read the Consent page.
  • Evidence-Based Practice: RMTs are required to incorporate an evidence-based practice approach into their practice. The Evidence-Based Practice Standard of Practice will take effect January 15, 2024. Read the Evidence-Based Practice page.
  • Indigenous Cultural Safety, Humility, and Anti-Racism: RMTs are required to provide culturally safe and anti-racist care for Indigenous patients. Read the Indigenous Cultural Safety, Humility, and Anti-Racism Applications to Practice.
  • Practice Environment: RMTs have requirements for maintaining the physical environment where they deliver treatment and provide care to patients, and for maintaining the objects and equipment within that environment. Read the Practice Environment page.
  • Scope of Practice: There are clear expectations for RMTs on the activities that they are educated and authorized to perform. The Scope of Practice Standard of Practice will take effect January 15, 2024. Read the Scope of Practice page.
