  14. 14.  Recognizing that the treatment of a partner or family member may constitute a conflict of interest and should only occur after other options have been explored or are unavailable. In all other circumstances, avoid yourself from entering into a close personal relationship with a patient, a patient’s partner or family member while the patient is receiving physiotherapy treatment.
  15. 15.  The physiotherapist is reasonably satisfied that the power differential inherent in a therapeutic relationship no longer exists and the physiotherapist reasonably believes the patient is not dependent on him/her.
