BC Schizophrenia Society Support

The LPNABC is happy to support the BCSS in promoting family involvement among the health professionals.

We as healthcare providers know that the National Guidelines for Family Caregivers recognizes the invaluable contribution that families make caring for the mentally ill. Health professionals need to recognize these contributions, support families, and work with them to ensure the best care possible for people living with mental illness.

Please take a few moments to review and support mental health initiatives. As nurses we advocate and promote on behalf of our patients and their family. Here you can also find the MHCC Family Caregiver Guidelines

Dianne Martin – CNA Editorial

Dianne Martin, ED of the RPNAO (Registered Practical Nurses Association of Ontario), was recently published in the CNA magazine regarding the recent CNA AGM where the leadership put forward a resolution(s) to accept LPN & RPNs to sit at the same table with voting rights as the RNs. While this time around it was defeated, this article states this is only the beginning in a very positive way.
