Decisions of the ACMDTT Hearing Tribunal

2017 CCP Hearings

In 2017, five ACMDTT members were directed into Hearings because their declarations of compliance with their 2015/16 Continuing Competence requirements were not true, and they had not completed their 2015/16 CCP obligations, and despite multiple attempts at remediation over an extended period, they did not engage professionally with the ACMDTT to resolve these issues.

Below are redacted copies of the decisions and orders of the Hearings Tribunal. In all Hearings, the Hearing Tribunal made findings of unprofessional conduct on all of the allegations presented by the ACMDTT.

The orders include all or some of the following penalties:

  • A period of suspension of between 10-14 days.
  • Full costs of the Hearing to a maximum of between $10,000-$15,000.
  • Mandatory CCP audit to be directed for the next two cycles.
  • Mandatory completion of the Regulation Education Module.
  • An essay reflecting on the responsibilities of a regulated member of the ACMDTT including:
  • Compliance with the Continuing Competence Program
  • Being candid, forthright and honest in all dealings with the ACMDTT and its staff
  • Cooperating with investigations conducted under the Health Professions Act and responding to correspondence received from the ACMDTT in a timely manner

Once again we advise members that compliance with CCP is legally mandated, and as evidenced by these findings of unprofessional conduct, this is enforceable. The ACMDTT will always endeavor to support members in understanding their regulatory obligations, but once again, we remind you that it is your responsibility as a regulated professional to know what your regulatory responsibilities are.
