The LPNABC continues to attend weekly teleconference meetings with the Ministry of Health staff and other stakeholders around Ebola. We hear directly from the BC Ministry of Health, along with updates Nationally, and locally, including public health and community updates. We also have an opportunity to be heard at a round table discussion for questions and answers from these clinical experts. It is expected that these meetings will continue for at least the coming year as Canadian healthcare workers return from volunteering in areas dealing with Ebola.
We are just one of many professional associations present and representing their members.
