P-12, r. 5.01 - Code of ethics of podiatrists

Full text
11.2. During the professional relationship, podiatrists must not establish friendships likely to compromise the quality of their professional services, or relations of an amorous or sexual nature with a patient or relative of the patient. They must also refrain from making remarks or gestures of a sexual nature to a patient or relative of the patient.
The duration of the professional relationship is determined by taking into account, in particular, the nature of the issues and the duration of the professional services provided, the patient’s vulnerability and the likelihood of having to provide professional services to the patient again.
