Practice standards define the minimum level of expected performance for registered massage therapists, and therefore define what constitutes safe, ethical, and competent delivery of care by RMTs.
CMTBC’s standards of practice are set out in Schedule “D” of the CMTBC Bylaws. The standard for patient records is set out in Schedule “E” of the CMTBC Bylaws. In addition, CMTBC has begun to develop new individual standards of practice (see below) that will complement and ultimately replace Schedule “D”. However, until all of the new standards have been developed and introduced, Schedule “D” will also remain in force.
As the College develops more practice standards on scope of practice and other topics, CMTBC will release proposed standards to RMTs and the public for feedback by posting them on the Proposed Standards of Practice page.
