Why is Continuing Education So Important?

The massage therapists' practice environment is constantly changing in terms of resources, expectations and emerging technologies. Registered Massage Therapists are accountable to the public to promote safe, ethical and competent care throughout their careers and continually acquire enhanced competence in their practice.
Continuing competence promotes effective massage therapy, assists in preventing poor practice, and contributes to the quality of practice and best possible patient outcomes.   It enables the massage therapist to base their practices on the most recent and strongest evidence necessary for high quality and effective care.  Continuous learning requires Registered Massage Therapists to reflect on their competencies in relation to the changes occurring in society and the health care environment and, as a result, take action to further educate themselves.
