Building on our role as a mutual defence organization, the CMPA developed the Member Support Program to benefit all CMPA members.
The Member Support Program team works with individual members and helps them proactively reduce their risk of future medical-legal events in order to benefit the membership as a whole. Members who have participated in the program are grateful for the opportunity to ease stress and improve their practice.
Our members believe the program supports the CMPA’s broader commitment to safe medical care and a sustainable medical liability system in Canada.
Mutuality is a core principle of the CMPA. As part of a “mutual,” the CMPA and its members collectively share the costs, risks, and benefits associated with membership. The CMPA provides medical liability protection to members, and in turn, members are required to meet certain reasonable expectations.
These expectations include practising in a manner that aligns with the ethics and general expectations of the profession and supports the values of the Association (or mutual) as a whole.
As part of their mutuality obligations, members participating in the program are expected to take an active role to improve the quality of their care and help prevent future medical-legal events.
No. The Member Support Program is intended to benefit all members and its assessment and support services are included as part of CMPA membership. The costs associated with any recommended educational programs will be at each member’s expense.
The CMPA understands the importance of privacy and the protection of personal health information. The Member Support Program team will not share any information regarding members participating in the program with individuals or parties outside the CMPA, including CMPA legal counsel.
