Who We Are

The BC Public Advisory Group brings the public voice and perspective to multiple health regulators in the province, whose shared mandate is to serve and protect the public. As health regulators, our job is to make sure that regulated health care providers in BC are qualified, so that you receive ethical and safe care. The health regulators involved in the BC Public Advisory Group include the:

  • BC College of Nursing Professionals
  • College of Dental Surgeons of BC
  • College of Massage Therapists of BC
  • College of Occupational Therapists of BC
  • College of Pharmacists of BC
  • College of Physical Therapists of BC
  • College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC

WE ARE CURRENTLY SEEKING PUBLIC MEMBERS FOR OUR PUBLIC ADVISORY GROUP

The Role

Members of the BC Public Advisory Group 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.

Eligibility

We are looking for members of the public who may have experience interacting with a variety of different health care professionals in different practice settings (e.g. clinics, hospitals, long-term care homes), although experience with the health care system is not a requirement. We hope to form a group that can help represent the diversity of the BC population.

Timing

The group is currently in a pilot phase. During the pilot phase, two in-person meetings will be held in Vancouver. The first meeting will take place in September 2019 (date to be determined).

Compensation

Members will be compensated for meeting attendance, as well as for travel and accommodation costs.

Please note that members will be selected based on varying demographics and experience, and therefore not all applicants will be selected for an interview.
