Framework for Public Notification
In 2014 BCHR developed a framework on public notification, a requirement under the Health Professions Act s. 39.3. All regulatory colleges have adopted this new framework.
A working group including the College of Pharmacists of BC, College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC, College of Dental Surgeons of BC, College of Psychiatric Nurses of BC and College of Registered Nurses of BC was struck to:
- study the consistency of how BC’s health profession colleges provide disciplinary notification on their websites;
- develop a framework for public notification; build a common approach for public protection; and promote consistent practice across BC’s health profession regulatory bodies.
Questions can be addressed by the regulatory colleges.
