Who should I contact if I have concerns about a colleague’s health condition and its impact on safe patient care?

Posted June 26, 2024

In some circumstances, it is your duty to report another physician:

  • You must report another physician to CPSA when you reasonably believe their conduct puts patients at risk, or is considered unprofessional conduct under the Health Professions Act.
  • You also have a duty to report to CPSA if you’re treating a physician who has a health condition that may impact the safety of their patients.

Confidentially contact the Health & Practice Conditions Monitoring team, or submit a notification of concern via our website.
