CDSBC’s publication requirements and policies are detailed in the Complaints and Discipline Publication Policy (PDF).
CDSBC publishes the outcomes of its complaint and discipline processes. Generally, the publication is anonymous; however, in some cases, the Health Professions Act (HPA) requires that CDSBC publish named information about its registrants.
A publication naming a registrant is made when a complaint is a serious matter (as defined in section 39.3 of the HPA) and/or goes to the discipline committee. In all cases, the individual who made the complaint will be notified of the outcome.
Note: CDSBC will withhold information when a registrant has an ailment or addiction and their privacy outweighs the public interest, or where the complainant could be publicly identified.
