  Title Chiropractic leadership in the eradication of sexual abuse
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2012 Mar;56(1):Online access only
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Health practitioners work under fiduciary constraint, and are obligated to favour patient needs over all others and in particular their own. The principles of professionalism demand that professionals take great care to ensure that boundaries are maintained safely to provide an optimal setting in facilitating patient care. Boundary violations cause serious harm to the patient. Any romantic or sexual activity between parties is the most serious form of boundary violation. The chiropractic profession is included in the list of disciplines which are at an increased risk for boundary violations. The authors propose a four stage protocol which is designed to offer all parties maximal protection beginning with undergraduate professional education and then mandatory continuing education for registrants in professional practice. The protocol would affect all aspects of professional life including training in boundaries and jurisdictional regulation.

Tout professionnel de la santé est contrait par des obligations fiduciaires, et les besoins du patient doivent avoir la priorité sur ceux de toute autre personne, y compris des siens. Les principes du professionnalisme exigent que les professionnels fassent très attention pour veiller à ce que les limites soient respectées en toute sûreté afin d’optimiser le milieu où le patient est soigné. Toute transgression à ces limites cause de graves dommages au patient. Une liaison romantique ou sexuelle entre les parties est la forme la plus grave de transgression d’une limite. La profession de chiropraticien fait partie de la liste des disciplines pour lesquelles il y a un plus grand risque de transgression des limites. Les auteurs de l’article proposent un protocole à quatre étapes conçu pour assurer une protection maximale, à partir de la formation professionnelle donnée au premier cycle, puis lors de l’éducation permanente obligatoire offerte aux praticiens professionnels. Le protocole toucherait à tous les aspects de la vie professionnelle, y compris une formation pour la sensibilisation aux limites et sur les pouvoirs de réglementation.
