The CPSA Standards of Practice, along with the CPSA Code of Conduct and the Code of Ethics, outline the minimum standards of professional behaviour and ethical conduct expected of all physicians registered in Alberta. Specific standards are supplemented with Advice to the Profession, which supports physicians in implementing the standards in their practice. Standards of practice are enforceable under the Health Professions Act and are referenced in complaints resolution and discipline hearings. Any proposed new or amended standards are subject to a formal consultation process.
