Regulation of Chiropody and Podiatry
On August 31, 2015 HPRAC submitted its report to the Minister on the regulation of chiropody and podiatry and the model of foot care in Ontario.
In 1999, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care referred the issue of the regulation of diagnostic sonographers to the Health Professions Regulatory Advisory Council (HPRAC). In 2000, HPRAC recommended that diagnostic sonographers be regulated under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) within the College of Medical Radiation Technologists of Ontario (CMRTO). Regulation did not occur at that time, however. In 2007, HPRAC was asked to reference its 2000 report and make recommendations on the currency of the advice provided. In 2013, the Minister noted that there may be additional considerations related to the regulation of the profession and further directed HPRAC to conduct a broad public consultation with key groups and stakeholders within the diagnostic sonographer community.
On June 27, 2014 HPRAC submitted a report to the Minister for his review. HPRAC's reports are confidential until released by the Minister.
On August 24, 2015 the Minister publicly released the report. As a result, HPRAC has posted the report on its webpage.
On March 26, 2010, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, the Hon. Deb Matthews asked HPRAC to advise whether paramedics and emergency medical attendants (EMAs) should be regulated under the RHPA.
On December 20, 2013, HPRAC submitted a report to the Minister for her review. HPRAC's reports are confidential until released by the Minister.
On March 7, 2014, the Minister publicly released the report. As a result, HPRAC has posted the report on its webpage.
