The Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) is committed to combating fraud, abuse and waste.

We held an education and awareness campaign in March 2017 (during Anti-Fraud Month). The campaign consisted of a blog post a day for 30 days.  Each post was emailed to all of our members across Canada.

Issues covered included

  • Definitions of fraud, abuse and waste
  • Mandatory reporting
  • Ethical business and billing practices
  • Evidence based practice
  • Organized crime in rehab
  • Patient privacy
  • Policy and procedure manual
  • Investigations
  • Co-payments, specials and discounts
  • Exercise class vs. physiotherapy treatment



  • Unprecedented engagement from membership on blog posts and social media
  • New connections between concerned and forward-thinking physiotherapists
