Health Authorities employ NPs in a variety of roles in British Columbia. Physicians are interested in working collaboratively with NPs in the context of the Patient Medical Home, but may be unsure of what NPs have to offer. This booth would provide information about what NPs do and include NPs and or collaborating team members who can speak to their experience.
Within Oceanside and Nanaimo Division, NPs are employed by Island Health in a variety of roles and our Professional practice department is supportive of our sharing our collaborative work in Island communities. BCNPA is also supportive of providing educational material for physicians to help them to better understand what NPs do. The booth would showcase how NPs are working with GPs to support patients in the context of pt care networks and medical homes.
