Bring your voice to health care regulation in BC!

The BC Public Advisory Network brings the public voice and perspective to multiple health regulators in the province, whose shared mandate is to serve and protect the public by regulating health care professionals (such as pharmacists, doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and dentists). As health regulators, our job is to make sure only qualified people practice in a safe and professional manner in BC.

Members of the BC Public Advisory Network will be asked to provide their feedback on important issues related to health care regulation, such as professional standards and policies, strategic priorities and communications directed at the public, and will be compensated for meeting attendance, as well as for travel and accommodation costs.

Where those of us in the room may have debated policy or wording, patient voices made sure patients were top of mind. And as a result, significant improvements were made to simplify something that was otherwise complex. Patient voices at the table bring us back to reality in terms of what we are trying to achieve.
