CMLTO's transparency measures: sexual abuse prevention

23 January 2015

In October 2014, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Dr. Eric Hoskins asked the Councils of Ontario’s regulatory health Colleges to make transparency a priority objective in their strategic plans, if it is not yet a stated priority.

In December 2014, Minister Hoskins established a Task Force on the Prevention of Sexual Abuse of Patients and the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991. He then asked each College to report on the current status and operations of its patient relations program’s measures for preventing and dealing with the sexual abuse of patients by January 23, 2015.

CMLTO's transparency initiatives

01 December 2014

In October, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Dr. Eric Hoskins asked the Councils of Ontario’s regulatory health Colleges to make transparency a priority objective in their strategic plans, if it is not yet a stated priority. Further, Minister Hoskins directed the Councils to take concrete steps to develop and establish measures that will continuously increase transparency in College processes and decision-making, and that will make more information available to Ontarians.

The Minister wants “to ensure that all Ontarians have access to information that is relevant and timely, useful and accurate – information that evokes public confidence and enhances the public’s ability to make informed decisions about their care.” As a result, he requested each Council to submit reports to him by December 1, 2014, outlining existing measures their College has in place to enhance transparency and new measures it will develop to increase transparency in College processes, decision-making and information disclosure.

You may read the CMLTO’s response (PDF) which details its measures and processes that demonstrate and support transparency to the public and members.
