Practice Risk Solutions

Risk Resources

An important element of the insurance program is to promote best practice and risk management resources to reduce liability risk to physiotherapists.

In partnership with legal and risk management service providers, we are building a database of physiotherapy specific tools, advice, and publications to better advance safer patient care and liability protection.

Although resources will be available to members only, select example publications will be periodically posted in this section. More resources are available on CPA’s website at

Participants of the Healthcare Professionals Insurance Alliance are provided with medico-legal practice risk resources developed by legal, risk management and profession specific (physiotherapy) specialists. Members are also eligible for 30-minute pro bono and inclusive legal claims defence services from Gowlings, one of the most highly-recognized legal firms in medical defence and professional liability in Canada.
