Regulation for members of the Ordre professionnel de la physiothérapie du Québec

On September 28, 2016, the draft Regulation amending the Regulation respecting the professional activities that may be engaged in by members of the Ordre professionnel de la physiothérapie du Québec under the Professional Code was published in the Gazette officielle du Québec for comment.

The draft Regulation adds section 4.1 which authorizes physiotherapists to administer and adjust oxygen where they make an assessment or intervene with a person who needs oxygen support, except if the person is receiving invasive ventilation or non-invasive positive pressure ventilation.

We are reviewing the draft regulation and will provide an update if there are any impacts.
