Do I need to self-report if I’m off work due to a physical health condition, accident or injury?

Posted June 26, 2024

Not all health conditions need to be reported to CPSA. You must report any condition, accident or injury to CPSA that is negatively impacting your work, or is reasonably likely to negatively impact your work in the future.

A health condition is a physical or mental health concern which could negatively impact the patient care provided by a regulated member. Conditions include (but are not limited to):

  • Blood-borne viral infections
  • Conditions affecting vision and hearing
  • Neurological conditions affecting cognition, motor or sensory function
  • Psychiatric conditions
  • Substance use disorder
  • Physical disability
  • Metabolic conditions

For more information, see our Duty to Report Self standard of practice. To self report, you can contact HPCM directly or submit a notification of concern to CPSA via our website.
