Accountability to Our Professional Standards and Policies
Our professional standards and policies guide our client relationships, our expectations from clients as well as how Lifemoves is operated. The British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists governs some of these professional standards. We also have our client policies.
As professionals, we are morally and ethically bound to keep our clients’ information confidential. Any information will only be released on consent of our clients unless we must do so by the laws of British Columbia or Canada.
Each professional association has its own scope of practice and code of ethics. We are bound by these and the limits of our own knowledge. Each certification and registration also requires annual continuing education.
We act in the best interest of our clients and refer our clients to other health and medical practitioners when the appropriate care is outside of our own scope and expertise.
