BCNPA Primary Care Transformation in British Columbia

The British Columbia Nurse Practitioner Association (BCNPA) wrote and released a paper in November 2016 around sustainable funding models for NPs in BC.  This paper has been distributed provincially and nationally to a wide group of stakeholders and they have received favourable review and feedback from many, including the Canadian Nurses Association, the BC Chief Nursing Officers, and the provincial and federal Ministries of Health.

The paper was recently presented by one of the co-authors Dr. Natasha Prodan-Bhalla, at the UBC Centre for Health Services and Policy Research Conference in Vancouver.  It was well-received there with keen interest from physicians who are interested in working with interprofessional teams in multi-disciplinary settings but are hampered by the limitations of their own current funding models.  Sustainable funding for new NP roles was seen as a pressing need by those in attendance.
