Updated Practice Documents: Virtual Services, Medical Assistance in Dying, Decision-Making Framework

July 20, 2021
The College has updated the following practice documents:

Virtual Services

This updated document replaces the Guidelines for Telepractice.

Virtual services refer to using communication technologies to provide occupational therapy services when clients and occupational therapists are not together in-person. The resource is available on our website in both English and French.


Medical Assistance in Dying

This document was formerly known as the Guidelines for Medical Assistance in Dying.

The revised document is available on our website in both English and French.


Decision-Making Framework

This document was formerly known as the Conscious Decision-Making Framework. The resource is available on our website in both English and French.

Please note: we have retired the Conscious Decision-Making in Occupational Therapy Fillable Worksheet and the 4A Approach to Conscious Decision-Making.


Reminder: In March, the College's Board of Directors approved a new way of naming all practice documents that are not Standards. These documents will no longer be categorized by “Guides” and “Guidelines” and instead will just be titled by topic. As other practice documents are revised and updated, they will be renamed according to their content.
