Professional Boundaries

The vast majority of chiropractors work with dedication and integrity and are committed to providing high-quality patient care; However, it can be very easy to blur the lines between delivering care and breaching sexual boundaries. In an effort to reinforce the importance of clear boundaries and support chiropractors with making good decisions, the Patient Relations Committee (PRC) has developed a Sexual Boundaries program that consists of a reference guide titled: Clear Sexual Boundaries Between Chiropractors and Patients: Responsibilities of Chiropractors. This document is available for viewing by registrants, the public, and other health professionals.
