Thank you to all who worked on this document as it brings many improvements. I see value in giving leeway to out-of-province physicians treating their own patients when that patient happens to be in Alberta. For example, a patient living in Ontario speaks with their Ontario psychiatrist once a month. If that patient happens to be in Alberta at the time of their monthly visit, technology could allow that beneficial care to continue even if it is not an emergency. If the CPSA allows this, then other provinces might reciprocate, allowing us to continue care on our patients when they travel.
