COTM sent a final email reminder to about 100 members who did not have their names in the PREP2017 Quiz Declaration database by midafternoon today.

Please remind the OTs you connect with to check their junk or spam folders - especially if they think they have not done the PREP quiz yet.

Formal Consultation on a new Standard of Practice for Prescribing Opioids

Jan 29 2018

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba invites members, related stakeholders, and the public to provide comments on the proposed new Standard of Practice for Prescribing Opioids, excluding patients with active cancer, in palliative care or at the end-of-life.

The proposed new Schedule to CPSM’s Standards of Practice outlines the way in which doctors are to prescribe opioids to patients across the province.
We have prepared two briefing notes, one for our members and stakeholders and one for the public, and invite you to review your version prior to taking an indepth look at the draft Standard itself.

Jan 24 2018

On January 18, 2018, COTM sent out an email to all members about receipts.  We wish to clarify a couple items. This message was sent as a reminder that as we enter tax prep season, you can find your COTM receipt and card in your Member Portal (in the Renewal History Tab. Member Portal access link was provided in the email). This statement applies to all COTM members who renewed their registration for May 31, 2017 (i.e. during the renewal period).  

Any COTM members who registered after June 1, 2017, were provided with a receipt at time of registration. This also applies to those members who converted their registration during the year; you were provided with a receipt following your conversion.  If you are unable to locate your receipt, please email .  We apologize for any confusion.
