Who We Are

The BC Public Advisory Network (BC-PAN) brings the public voice and perspective to multiple health regulators in the province. Health regulators have a shared mandate to serve and protect the public by ensuring regulated health-care professionals are qualified and provide safe and ethical care. 

The health regulators involved in the BC-PAN 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

Purpose 

The goal of the BC-PAN is to encourage more comprehensive and meaningful public engagement on important issues related to health-care regulation in BC. The public members are asked to provide their feedback on a variety of topics to help guide professional standards and policies, strategic priorities, and communications directed at the public. 

Public Members

Currently, there are eleven public members involved with the BC-PAN. The public members have varying levels of experience interacting with health-care professionals and were selected to represent the diversity of the BC population. 

Meetings

The BC-PAN is currently in its pilot phase which consists of two initial meetings. The first meeting took place on September 25, 2019 and the second meeting will occur in January, 2020.

The BC-PAN is not currently accepting new members. However, we may be expanding the BC-PAN following the pilot phase. Please feel free apply here, and we may get in touch with you should any opportunities arise.
