SEXUAL ABUSE TASK FORCE AND RHPA AMENDMENTS
In December 2014, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care (Dr. Eric Hoskins) appointed a Task Force on the Sexual Abuse of Patients and the Regulated Health Professions Act. A draft of the Task Force report was first tabled with the Minister and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care early in 2016. Some amendments to the Report were made and the Report entitled " To Zero: Independent Report of the Minister’s Task Force on the Prevention of Sexual Abuse of Patients and the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991" was released on September 9, 2016.
Please see the Member's Only Regulation Portal for a summary of the recommendations by the Task Force, and a report on the first consultation held by the Ministry.
