Public consultations

Your feedback is valuable.

Ontario health regulators often seek feedback from the public, health professionals and others when developing policies, guidelines and other documents.

Your feedback helps us identify and assess the issues that concern the public. It helps us develop the policies and standards that guide the work of regulated health professionals and help colleges protect you.

College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario:

Social Media

CPSO’s Social Media – Appropriate Use by Physicians statement is currently being reviewed. A new draft Social Media policy has been developed to replace the statement and set out professional expectations for physicians using social media. The draft policy addresses similar issues to those seen in the statement around professionalism, privacy and confidentiality, and boundaries.

We want you to help us refine the draft Social Media policy before it’s finalized.

A new Advice to the Profession: Social Media document has also been drafted to clarify and further explain the draft policy content.

Have your say:

We want to hear your thoughts on the new draft policy and the draft Advice to the Profession document. For example, we are interested to know:

  • Does the draft policy provide useful guidance to physicians using social media?
  • Are the expectations set out in the draft policy clear and reasonable?
  • Are there issues not addressed in the draft policy and/or Advice document that should be?

Or please answer the specific questions we have in our online survey regarding the draft policy content (click here to download the PDF list of questions).
