Hearing Decisions, Media Release | Posted August 2, 2023

Edmonton, AB – A CPSA Hearing Tribunal found Dr. Ali Nsair guilty of unprofessional conduct, after he was accused of not responding to communications from CPSA and failing to complete mandatory training.

After reviewing the evidence, the Hearing Tribunal found that CPSA made significant efforts to engage with Dr. Nsair, but he consistently failed to complete a mandatory Patient Relations education module, did not respond to CPSA on multiple occasions and did not cooperate with subsequent investigations into his conduct.

These findings were determined to amount to unprofessional conduct under the Health Professions Act (HPA). The Tribunal emphasized that regulated members have a duty to respond to CPSA and cooperate with investigations, as it is crucial to the principle of self-regulation and maintaining public trust in the profession.

Dr. Nsair did not attend the hearing. The Hearing Tribunal will consider appropriate orders or sanctions at a later date.
