Influenza prevention measures to protect patients
VICTORIA – Health authorities in British Columbia are acting on the advice of Dr. Perry Kendall, B.C.`s Provincial Health Officer, and implementing measures to better protect patients and seniors from being exposed to influenza.
Beginning this year, health care workers who come into contact with patients at publicly funded health care facilities or in the community, including at long term care facilities, will need to get the influenza vaccine, or wear a mask during the flu season.

CHANGES TO THE WORKERS COMPENSATION ACT
Please note on Thursday, May 31, 2012 the Government of British Columbia passed Bill 14 which made important changes to the Workers Compensation Act which come into effect on July 1, 2012. These changes are centred on recognition, assessment and diagnosis of work-related stressors or trauma as compensable injuries by WorkSafe BC. The College draws registrants' attention to the recognition of psychologists in the amended legislation as designated "qualified practitioners" who, along with psychiatrists, will be authorized to assess and diagnose workers with regard to these expanded areas of compensable work-related injury.
