No Physical Contact When Treating Patients?

Sunday Times 9/8/20
Today's Sunday Times on page A10 highlighted two incidents where a personal trainer and a Yoga instructor got into trouble after touching their clients inappropriately. Gino has previously written about this before, you can read it here.

We are so fortunate that we do not face such issues when we work with our patients since we cannot be totally sure if we don't assess them.

We definitely will never take for granted that our patients give us consent to touch them when we assess and treat them. Again, Gino has written about this before.

All our patients deserve and need gentle and thoughtful treatment. So our human touch is really important as we can diagnose, comfort and treat our patients.

We will endeavour to be very careful with our touch since we want to convey gentleness, compassion as were treat and heal them. Thank you for your trust in us.
