The Association of Registered Nurses of BC

In late 2014, the Select Standing Committee on Health requested submissions related to four key topic areas that the Committee was interested in exploring further. These included:
  1. How can we improve health and health care services in rural British Columbia? In particular, what long-term solutions can address the challenges of recruitment and retention of health care professionals in rural British Columbia?
  2. How can we create a cost-effective system of primary and community care built around interdisciplinary teams?
  3. What best practices can be implemented to improve end-of-life care?
  4. How can we enhance the effectiveness of addiction recovery programs?

The Select Standing Committee's public consultations culminated with the release of a report in March 2017. The report includes 59 recommendations which focuses on better access for rural health care, wider use of interdisciplinary teams, and enhancing the effectiveness of addiction recovery programs.
