RNAO's Submission to the Standing Committee on Social Policy, Bill 179: Regulated Health Professions Statute Law Amendment Act

Resource Type: 
Submission / Letter

RNAO appeared before a legislative committee examining Bill 179 at Queen’s Park on October 5th.

The legislation would amend various acts related to health professions, including RNs and NPs.

While RNAO believes there are welcome changes in the legislation, the association says significant omissions in the legislation prevent health professionals from working to their full scope and inhibit the government from making any real progress on increasing access and decreasing wait times.
