Dr. Brianne Hudson suspended from practice

Hearing Decisions, Media Release | Posted January 13, 2023

Edmonton, AB – Dr. Brianne Hudson, a family physician from Grande Prairie, has been suspended from practice as of January 9, 2023, after a CPSA Hearing Tribunal found that her conduct constitutes “sexual abuse” as defined in the Health Professions Act.

Dr. Hudson was accused of having a sexual relationship with a patient between August 2019 and December 2019, and subsequently providing false information on her 2020 CPSA Renewal Information Form, claiming she had not engaged in a sexual or inappropriate personal relationship with a patient that had not been previously reported to CPSA.

The Hearing Tribunal found Dr. Hudson guilty on both charges.

Dr. Hudson had signed an agreement with CPSA in February 2020 that placed practice conditions on her permit, including having a chaperone present for all patient interactions, including telephone appointments other than the communication of urgent information, and having another physician or regulated health professional present in any clinical setting. These conditions remained on her permit throughout the complaint and hearing process.

Pursuant to section 81.1(1) of the Health Professions Act, Dr. Hudson’s practice permit has been suspended pending the determination of sanction.

Dr. Hudson is responsible for taking reasonable steps to place patients under acute and/or active care with another healthcare provider.
