Resources for physicians during COVID-19

COVID-19, From the Registrar | Posted March 26, 2020

"Physicians should not be reluctant to provide care, even when it may be extremely difficult to follow some components of CPSA's Standards of Practice. CPSA will always consider the individual circumstances and context if a complaint arises during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an emergency situation, failure to meet standards is not considered unprofessional conduct if a physician can demonstrate they took all reasonable actions in their service to patients"

- Dr. Scott McLeod, CPSA Registrar
