Tell us what you think:
We want you to help us refine the newly retitled draft Human Rights in the Provision of Health Services policy before it’s finalized.
The draft policy retains the majority of the core expectations in the existing Professional Obligations and Human Rights policy, but some important updates have been made to enhance clarity and better serve the public interest.
Updates include specifying how to create and foster ideal environments where patients’ needs can be met, how to navigate requests from patients to receive care from a physician with a particular social identity, and new safeguards for effective referrals given the addition of a new, less onerous example of how to provide an effective referral to the Advice document.
The draft Advice to the Profession: Human Rights in the Provision of Health Services document has been updated to provide guidance on the draft policy’s expectations, including examples and resources to help physicians incorporate cultural humility, cultural safety, anti-racism, and anti-oppression into their practices.

Have your say:
We want to hear your thoughts on the draft policy. For example, we’re interested to know:
- Does the draft policy provide useful guidance to physicians?
- Are the expectations set out in the draft policy clear and reasonable?
- Are there issues not addressed in the draft policy that should be?
Please provide your feedback by November 28, 2022.
Your feedback is important to us. Your comments will be carefully reviewed and used to help us evaluate the draft Human Rights in the Provision of Health Services policy. CPSO Council will ultimately determine what policy revisions will be made when finalizing and approving the policy.
