Being registered as a health care professional with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) confers on us the right and privilege to practise our profession. Correspondingly, practitioners have moral or ethical duties to others and society. These duties are generally in keeping with the principles of the South African Constitution (Act No. 108 of 1996) and the obligations imposed on health care practitioners by law.
