Appeal from Dr. Neil Skjodt to stay CPSA disciplinary proceedings denied

Hearing Decisions, Media Release | Posted January 19, 2023

Edmonton, AB – In April 2022, Dr. Neil Skjodt of Sherwood Park brought forward a preliminary application to a CPSA Hearing Tribunal, arguing charges of unprofessional conduct against him should be stayed due to undue delays in CPSA’s complaints process. The complaints, the first of which was received in 2015, allege misconduct by Dr. Skjodt towards three patients.

After considering submissions from both parties, the Hearing Tribunal denied Dr. Skjodt’s application. Dr. Skjodt appealed to a CPSA Council Review Panel, who found the Hearing Tribunal’s decision was reasonable and dismissed the appeal.

Dr. Skjodt has appealed the Council Review Panel’s decision to the Alberta Court of Appeal.
