Public Consultations

CPSM conducts formal consultations prior to making changes to the following:

  • Bylaws
  • Standards of Practice
  • Code of Ethics and Professionalism
  • Regulations
  • And Practice Directions (as determined by Council)

CPSM seeks input from the public, other interested groups, registrants, the Manitoba Government, Doctors Manitoba, CMPA, other regulated health professions in Manitoba, the University of Manitoba faculty of medicine, and other stakeholders as applicable to the topic under consideration.

All bylaw amendments must be voted upon and passed by the CPSM members at the Annual General Meeting in June.

Hearing and receiving input from diverse professional opinions from the public, registrants, regulated health professions, and other stakeholders creates standards that are stronger, comprehensive, and better reflect best practices for patient safety, while balancing public concerns. 

Consultations are made available to the public and are advertised and promoted in the media.
