President’s MessagePublished: juillet 28, 2020
It is hard to believe, that just a few months ago, in the depths of winter we were thinking about the coming summer, travel, relaxation and a pleasant break from the routines of winter. And then it began: the spread of COVID-19 and the dramatic changes that each of us has had to face both professionally and in our personal lives.
Physical distancing measures necessary to decrease the spread of COVID-19 have led to the postponement of in- person Peer Assisted Reviews and to flexibility in upcoming Quality Assurance deadlines.
Lack of adequate planning for the closure of a member’s practice, especially when this is sudden or unexpected, can lead to difficulties for clients and patients.
As might be expected, about half of the inquiries received from members over the past many months relate to practicing in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The evolving nature of these questions is reflected in the advice provided by the College in email messages to members.
Since the March meeting there have been a number of changes to the College Council. Ms. Christine DiZazzo, (District 7, Psychological Associate) and Dr. Patricia Minnes (District 8, Academic) have left Council after many years of service. We gratefully acknowledge their involvement and contributions.
