Alberta's professional osteopathic manual therapist association Est. 2007
The Alberta Association of Osteopathic Manual Therapists (AAOMT) was established as a not-for-profit association in September 2007. Although Osteopathic Manual Therapy was in its infancy at the time of incorporation, it was important to establish an organization that would set the standards of care, education, and safety in Alberta. In addition, the AAOMT would oversee the advancement of the profession of Osteopathic Manual Therapy in our province, unify its members, and educate the public. The AAOMT is a recognized member of the Canadian Federation of Osteopathy (CFO) and the Osteopathic International Alliance (OIA).
National Standard of Canada for Osteopathic Healthcare
The National Standard of Canada, CSA Z16686:20, Osteopathic healthcare provision, helps standardize the core competencies, educational requirements, and the ethical framework for manual osteopathic care across the country. CSA Z16686:20 also helps safeguard patients and provides assertion of the quality of care they could receive via manual osteopathic treatment. Based on the 2015 European Standard EN 16686 of the same name and the World Health Organization (WHO) 2010 ‘Benchmarks for Training in Osteopathy’, it brings Canada in line with the best and most widely accepted standards in this field.
CSA Z16686:20 was developed by CSA Group in accordance with internationally recognized protocols. It is available for purchase on the CSA Store.
