Annual Self Report
The Annual Self Report (ASR) is the first component of the Quality Assurance Program. It is an interactive online tool that provides an opportunity to support continuing competence by expanding a physical therapist’s knowledge and understanding of professional, legal, and ethical obligations.
The ASR uses a self-quiz structure, accessed via a personalized ID and password login (these ASR login credentials are different from those associated with a registrant’s College (CPTBC) account). Answers and explanations are provided for self-quiz questions, and links to resources that support practice are listed throughout. After completion of the ASR, physical therapists receive personalized feedback reports on specific risks in their practice, and supports to further competence.
The College will not have access to ASR information collected from individual registrants. The College will only be notified that a registrant has completed the ASR. The anonymous data will be collected and used in aggregate to identify topics for which the College may need to provide additional resources or supports for physical therapists in British Columbia.
Regulatory topics covered in the ASR:
- Practice Standards
- Professional boundaries
- Clinical records / documentation
- Consent to treatment
- CPTBC Code of Ethics
- British Columbia Health Professions Act, College regulation of practice
- Infection control
- Privacy laws (e.g., Personal Information Protection Act, Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act)
- Appropriate referral to other health care workers re: needs of patients, personal competence
