The Minister of Health and Long-Term Care has requested that HPRAC "review issues relating to the regulation of chiropody and podiatry and provide advice as to whether and how there should be changes to existing legislation regarding these related professions". She asked that the Council include "an analysis of the current model of foot care in Ontario, issues regarding restricted titles, and whether the existing limitations on the podiatrist class of members should continue."
The Minister’s referral question is multi-pronged and will be addressed in stages. At this time, HPRAC is seeking input on the current model of foot care in Ontario.
The consultation period is from April 4, 2014 to July 4, 2014.
On March 26, 2010, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, the Hon. Deb Matthews asked HPRAC to advise whether paramedics and emergency medical attendants (EMAs) should be regulated under the RHPA.
On December 20, 2013, HPRAC submitted a report to the Minister for her review. HPRAC's reports are confidential until released by the Minister.
On March 7, 2014, the Minister publicly released the report. As a result, HPRAC has posted the report on its webpage.
