Investigate the health poseurs

Re: “Naturopaths file lawsuit against unlicensed Surrey physicians”

Through recent media stories the public is becoming increasingly aware of healthcare providers who pose as professionals or otherwise cause harm or potential harm to the public.

The Health Profession Regulators of B.C. represents regulatory colleges with the legislated mandate to protect the public through the regulation of healthcare professionals. Together, we regulate nearly 100,000 people working in more than two dozen health professions in BC. When a healthcare professional is registered and licensed, it means that the public can be assured that the health professional has met educational requirements, has evidence of good character, and practices to the standards of their profession.

When there is concern about the care or ethics of a licensed healthcare professional, the public is encouraged to contact the regulatory body to investigate and take action when necessary.

A complete list of BC health profession regulators can be found on< Ask your health professional if he or she is registered or licensed by a regulatory college.

Cynthia Johansen, Chair, Health Profession Regulators of B.C.
