Unshakeable confidence in nursing and midwifery care
As we stated earlier this week, a new Order of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO)—the Health Professionals COVID-19 Vaccination Status Information and Preventive Measures Order—requires BCCNM to record the COVID-19 vaccination status of all of its registrants by March 31, 2022. On request by BCCNM, registrants must provide proof of vaccination or proof of an exemption if they have it.
Changes to MAiD forms
The Ministry of Health recently released updated provincial forms for medical assistance in dying (MAiD) in B.C. The expectation is that patients and MAiD providers will use the updated forms for all new MAiD cases as of Feb. 28, 2022.
The practice standard, Indigenous Cultural Safety, Cultural Humility, and Anti-Racism took effect Feb. 25, 2022.
To help registrants apply the new practice standard, we've put together a preliminary list of readings, videos, courses, and reports that you may find helpful as you begin or continue your learning journey about Indigenous cultural safety, cultural humility, and anti-racism.
This list will be added to over the coming weeks and months so check back frequently!
Inquiry, Discipline, and Monitoring updates
BCCNM publishes a variety of professional conduct notices on its website. These notices include consent agreements, Discipline Committee and Inquiry Committee notices, and Inquiry and Discipline hearing notices. While all of these notices are public information, only exceptional outcomes (i.e., Inquiry Committee order, Discipline order, hearing outcome) and circumstances (i.e., discipline hearing) are highlighted in registrant newsletters.
