While the College recognizes that physiotherapists are self-directed, motivated adult learners who do continually look to maintain and improve their competence, the importance of ensuring a profession-wide dissemination of new information and understanding of topics is in our best interests as a profession.
In an effort to meet the goal of a wide dissemination of information, CPM Council agreed to making participation in some continuing education mandatory for both the renewal or conversion of licenses for existing registrants, as well as for the licensing of new registrants of the College. The name “College Selected Activity” was chosen to encompass the topics of jurisprudence, ethical decision making, and other topics based on professional and public interest issues. In January 2020, Council passed a motion that required physiotherapists to complete the Manitoba Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA) jurisprudence module as the College Selected Activity for Active registration in 2021. In 2022, the chosen College Selected Activity was the Pause Before You Post: Social Media Awareness learning module.
As we approach the 2023 registration year, the College of Physiotherapists of Manitoba has launched the next College Selected Activity on the Members’ Only Portal of the CPM website. This learning module, titled Health Equity and Cultural Humility, will enhance awareness and understanding of health inequities, with the intent of improving the delivery of care across many patient populations. The module clarifies professional expectations for addressing disparities in health equity through equity-oriented practice.
The completion of this College Selected Activity is a requirement for all physiotherapists renewing their license to practice on the Active Practice Register in 2023 OR converting to the Active Practice Register in 2023. The deadline to complete this module is February 28, 2023.
