CMTBC launches new mandatory online course: Documentation in Massage Therapy Practice

CMTBC has developed a new online course: Documentation in Massage Therapy Practice. The course is now available.

With examples drawn from clinical practice, the course explores in detail the documentation and record-keeping requirements in CMTBC’s Bylaws, Code of Ethics, and newly enacted Standards of Practice. The course aims to ensure that RMTs understand the purpose and importance of proper documentation in massage therapy practice, including the new requirements for documentation contained in the boundaries, consent, and practice environment Standards of Practice, as well as the basic components and requirements of the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA). RMTs will also learn how to adequately document unique or challenging situations in their massage therapy practice.

All RMTs – Practising and Non-Practising – are required to complete the Documentation in Massage Therapy Practice course by October 31, 2022 as a requirement for 2023 registration renewal. By requiring completion of this online course, with a final quiz to demonstrate achievement of the learning objectives, CMTBC meets its mandate to ensure that RMTs remain current with and practice in accordance with the minimum standards contained in CMTBC’s Bylaws, Code of Ethics, and Standards of Practice.

For more information, including how to enroll, technology recommendations, and references and resources, see the CMTBC Online Courses page.

The new online course is not a Cycle 13 requirement, but rather has been launched as part of the changes to CMTBC’s Quality Assurance program. To learn more about these changes, see Quality Assurance Program 2023 and beyond.
