Monitoring the practice

The Professional Inspection Office, together with the Professional Inspection Committee (PIC), is responsible for coordinating professional practice monitoring of OPPQ members. Their ongoing concern is to ensure that the Quebec public receives safe and effective quality physiotherapy services.

Inspector visits, professional practice questionnaires, and client record evaluations are some of the many tools used to effectively monitor OCCQ member practices.

The PIC can also conduct special inspections when a physical rehabilitation therapist’s competence is called into question. This type of inspection involves a complete assessment of the member’s theoretical and practical competence. A report from the Syndic may trigger a special inspection.
