Since that time, the Unit has continued to befu ded on an ongoing basis (subject to annual review) as part of the Centre for Health Services and Policy Research.  The Unit undertakes a series of research studies that are relevant to health human resources management and to public policy decisions.  The HHRU’s research agenda is determined through discussions of key current issues and available resources with the senior staff of the Ministry of Health.  Various health care provider groups participate indirectly, through on-going formal and informal communications with Ministry of Health officials and with HHRU researchers.  Three types of research are included in the Unit’s research agenda.  In conjunction with professional licensing bodies or associations, the HHRU maintains the Cooperative Health Human Resources Database.  The Unit uses these data to produce regular status reports that provide a basis for in-depth studies and for health human resources planning.  The Unit undertakes more detailed analyses bearing on particular health human resources plicy i sues and assesses the impact of specific policy measures, using secondary analyses of data from the Cooperative Database, data from the administrative databases maintained under the HIDU, or primary data collected through surveys.  The HHRU also conducts specific projects pertaining to the management of health human resources at local, regional and provincial levels.

INVENTORY UPDATE 00 represents the culmination of six intensive months of data collection, consistency checks, table generation, definition and other text verification, proof- eading and analysis.  The programmer team working on this edition was headed by Kerry Kerluke and included Harold Yip and Patrick Wong Fung.  Allyson MacDonald, Laura Wood and Sherin Rahim-Jamal handled the data collection, editing and updating.  Allyson MacDonald and Kerry Kerluke co-ordinated the report production.  Tables were produced on an IBMTM compatible PC using, Microsoft® Excel 2000 and software written in FoxPROTM v2.5.  Text was produced using Microsoft® Word 2000.   Financial support from the British Columbia Ministries of Health and The University of British Columbia is gratefully acknowledged.  iv TABLE OF CONTENTS Page Number  Introduction ............................................................................................................................. ix  Table Number    British Columbia Total  1 Health Personnel, Hospital Beds, Community Pharmacies and Population ........................ 3  2 Selected Health Personnel by Age and Sex ....................................................................... 4  3 Selected Health Personnel by Place of Graduation ............................................................ 5     Regional Health Boards    1.

The INVENTORY series presents a regional analysis of health personnel in the province of British Columbia.  The series has two components - INVENTORY  and INVENTORY UPDATE - which are produced in alternate years.  INVENTORY UPDATE, published for even-numbered years, contains information derived from the ROLLCALL UPDATE series about selected health professions for which annual electronic data are av ilable through the CHHRD.  These data are owned by the regulatory bodies and professional associations of each group.   The tables included in this report have been generated in response to a need for regional information about health human resources planning in British Columbia.  They have been published in this format to increase the usability of ROLLCALL UPDATE 00 information, but are not meant to replace that volume, which offers more detailed information about the eighteen health occupations or groups included in INVENTORY UPDATE 00.   Table 1 gives a brief outline, for each professional group, of the source of data and the dates of record used in producing these tables.

Mar 1999 & Apr 2001  ix  This edition of INVENTORY UPDATE includes for the first time data on the newly regulated profession of acupuncturists.  The inclusion of acupuncturists was made possible this year because of the availability of a reliable registration database for this group.     Unlike past years, Psychologists do not appear in INVENTORY UPDATE this year because the College of Psychologists of B.C. (CPBC) did not supply data for psychologists, despite the HHRU’s persisitent efforts to procur the data.  We refer you instead to INVENTORY 99 for the most recent and accurate data available on this group.   Health Authorities (HAs) in British Columbia are now responsible for health human resources planning in their respective regions, thus this edition of INVENTORY UPDATE presents data by Health Authority (HA) rather than by Health Region (HR) as previous editions of INVENTORY UPDATE have done.  The Health Authori ies used in INVENTORY UPDATE 00 comprise the eleven Regional Health Boards and the seven Community Health Services Societies.  The boundaries of these Health Authorities are similar to those of the Health Regions with only two differences: the health rgions of Vancouver and Richmond are combined into the Vancouver/Richmond Regional Health Board; and the health regions of Simon Fraser and Burnaby are combined into the Simon Fraser Regional Health Board.  A map of the province's Health Authorities and a table showing the conversion between Local Health Areas, the Health Regions formerly used in INVENTORY UPDATE and the Health Authorities used in this edition is found in Appendix B.   The population 'projections' used this year are from P.E.O.P.L.E. #25 and are the most recent population 'projections' available from the Population Section, B.C. Stats (July 2000).  All tables showing inter-temporal comparisons of personnel per 10,000 population distributions for 1998, 1999 and 2000 and rates of change for personnel-to-population ratios have been computed using the P.E.O.P.L.E. #25 population data.  Therefore, the 1998 and 1999 personnel to population ratios that appear in INVENTORY UPDATE 00 may differ from those reported in INVENTORY 99 because they have been recalculated based on these updated population data.   Table 2 is reproduced from the Introduction to ROLLCALL UPDATE 00 and presents data for the sixteen health professions and two sub-gr ups (first responders and licensed graduate nurses) by group type and employment status.  All but one health profession included in the INVENTORY UPDATE series are now self-r gulated groups, where registration with the regulatory body is required for employment in the field.  Registered dietitians and nutritionists are the ly remaining voluntary membership group, although this group is in the process of becoming a self-r gulated hea th profession (please see the dietitians and nutritionists chapter for more information).  Registered dietitians and nutritionists are included because electronic copies of their databases are readily available to the HHRU, and they are considered to have a fairly broad membership base.  By definition, if a health profession is a voluntary membership group, all those employed in that field may ot be ncluded in the INVENTORY UPDATE tables.  This should be kept in mind when using these data.   Table 2 also shows the varying proportions of each group that are known to be working in the field, compared to those that are not, and those for whom work status is unknown.  The tables in the rest of this publication use total numbers for the group, as this represents the potential workforce in each region.  The distinction between potential workforce and effective supply is an important one for health planners to make; the former represents health human resources available to the region, while the latter refers to health human resources currently deployed.  More information about employment is available in ROLLCALL UPDATE 00. x    The main body of this publication is comprised of tables, starting with a set of tables for provincial totals and followed by tables grouped by Health Authority, with tables for the eleven Regional Health Boards appearing first then followed by tables for the seven Community Health Serv ces Societies.  The first table for each Health Authority shows number and number per 10,000 population in 1999 and 2000 for each health occupation.  The first table for each Health Authority also shows the average annual rates of change1 in the number and number per 10,000 population.  The average annual rate of change in number is the growth in the number of the health workforce for the year, while the average                                                   1 Average annual rate of change (in percent) in the number of personnel is computed as follows:  [(Personnel 2000/Personnel 1999)12/n -1] x 100,  where n=number of months separating the 1999 and 2000 data based on the dates of record listed for each group.   Average annual rate of change (in percent) in the number of personnel relative to the change in population is computed as follows:  [{(Personnel 2000/Personnel 1999) x (Population 1999/Population 2000)}12/n - 1] x 1 0,  where n=number of months separating the two sets of data. xi Table 2Health Personnel Groups in British Columbiaby Group Type by Employment Status2000Not EmploymentEmployed Employed StatusSELF-REGULATORY GROUPS in Field1 In Field2 Unknown3 TOTALCertified Dental Assistants  (CDSBC)                - 443         4,543         4,986         Dental Hygienists  (CDHBC) 1,532         64         157         1,753         Dentists  (CDSBC)                - 114         2,584         2,698         Acupuncturists  (CTCMPABC)                -                - 367         367         Emergency Medical Assistants  (EMALB) 2,822                        -                - 2,822         First Responders4  (EMALB) 7,808                        -                - 7,808         Midwives (CMBC)                -                - 61         61         Opticians (COBC) 1,036         212         65         1,313         Pharmacists  (CPBC) 2,693         401                        - 3,094         Physicians  (CPSBC)                -                - 8,909         8,909         Licensed Practical Nurses  (CLPNBC) 4,280         536         7         4,823         Registered Nurses  (RNABC) 27,754         3,300                        - 31,054         Licensed Graduate Nurses  (RNABC) 186         28                        - 214         Registered Psychiatric Nurses  (CRPNBC) 2,203         277                        - 2,480         Massage Therapists  (CMTBC) 1,275         86         55         1,416         Occupational Therapists  (COTBC)                -                - 1,177         1,177         Physical Therapists  (CPTBC) 1,922         333         288         2,543         SUB TOTAL 53,511         5,794         18,213         77,518         VOLUNTARY MEMBERSHIP GROUPDietitians and Nutritionists  (BCDNA)                -                - 794         794         SUB TOTAL                -                - 794         794         1  Includes personnel who are known to be employed in the field as reported by the regulatory body or membership association.2  Includes personnel who have a membership or registration status which makes them ineligible for employment in the field, and those who are reported    as "employed in another field", "unemployed", "on leave"  or "not practicing" by the regulatory body, or membership association.3  Includes personnel who have a membership or registration status which makes them eligible for employment in the field, but whose employment    status is unknown.4  Information is collected only for those known to be employed and certified as first responders.  However, acting as a first responder is not the primary    duty of this employment group (i.e., most are firemen or policemen). annual rate of change in ratio shows the growth in the number of the health workforce in re ation to the growth in the population.  For the latter statistic, a positive number indicates the health workforce grew faster than the general population, and a negative number indicates the health workforce grew more slowly than the general population.  This first table also includes numbers of regional hospital beds, community pharmacies, and regional populations.   The second table for each Health Authority shows age and sex distribution for each of the groups for which it is available from ROLLCALL UPDATE 00.  The final table produced for each Health Authority shows place of graduation information for those groups normally contained in the HHRU biennial series PLACE OF GRADUATION and for whom data are available this year.   Appendix A is a compilation of information for each health profession excerpted from ROLLCALL UPDATE 00.

Hence, 1999 data are not available.6 Due to the change in the source of data this year, data from 1999 are not comparable and are not shown in the table.7 Due to errors found in the PT data published in ROLLCALL 99 and INVENTORY 99, data from INVENTORY UPDATE 98 are presented here for comparison.8 Total excludes Acupuncturists and Occupational Therapists because comparable data for 1999 and 2000 are not available.9 Data for 1999 are not available because hospital bed capacity data were never approved by the B.C. Ministry of Health in 1999.10 Data on bassinets are not included, as data were unavailable in 2000.* Indicates that the base for the rate of change is less than 10. n/a - Not applicable/not comparable.

An emergency medical assistant first responder (EMA FR) may be employed with a police force, a fire department, or an agency approved by the Emergency Health Services Commission (EHSC) such as a Native Band Council.  All other EMAs are employed either with the EHSC or with a contractor who has a contract for service with the EHSC.   Emergency medical assistants are categorised as follows:   (a) Emergency Medical Assistant First Responder (EMA FR)    Receive 4 to 32 hours of training.  Acting as an EMA is generally not a primary duty.  (b) Emergency Medical Assistant First Aid (EMA FA)    Receive approximately 70 hours of training.  Many EMA FA's eventually receive the necessary training, mostly related to ambulance oper tion, to move to EMA 1 status.

The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when the membership status is practising, when employment in nursing is reported, and when employment address is available.  In 1999 and 2000, employment address was available for 88% of practising RNs employed in nursing.  Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for practising RNs who are not employed in nursing, and for RNs with non-practisng membership status.   There was a small number of RNs dually registered with the Registered Psychiatric Nurses Association of British Columbia (see text on RPNs).  Dual registrants are included in both the RN and RPN categories.  LICENSED GRADUATE NURSES  Definition: A licensed graduate nurse  (a) was employed in British Columbia, in a capacity substantially equivalent to a registered nurse, at any time during the two years prior to September 30, 1988; (b) graduated from a school of nursing that has standard  ubstantially equivalent to those of any approved school of nursing, and; (c) was never a registered nurse, and at the time of application to the RNABC did not qualify as a registered nurse.19  Notes:   Information on licensed graduate nurses (LGNs) was derived from registration data maintained by the Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia (RNABC) and includes LGNs who reported a British Columbia address at the date of record.  An LGN may hold a practising or non-practising                                                   18  Adapted from the Rules under the Nurses (Registered) Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, Chapter 335, Part 2, s.2.1.  (Information provided by the Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia.) 19  Adapted from the Nursing Statutes Amendment Act, S.B.C. 1988, Chapter 51, Section 15. 88   membership in the RNABC.  A practising LGN may or may not be employed in nursing.  A non-practising LGN who commences employment in nursing in British Columbia must convert to practising membership.  The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when the member hip status is practising, when employment in nursing is reported, and when employment address is available.  In 1999 and 2000, employment address was available for 90% and 88% respectively, of practising LGNs employed in nursing.  Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for practising LGNs who are not employed in nursing, and for LGNs with non-practising membership status.  REGISTERED PSYCHIATRIC NURSES  Definition: A registered psychiatric nurse ...practises in primary, secondary and terti ry care settings and provides service to individuals whose primary care needs relate to mental and developmental health.  The basis of psychiatric nursing is a caring, therapeutic relationship; the core knowledge and skills of psychiatric nursing are developed from the nursing, psycho-social, biological, and physical sciences.  Psychiatric nursing practice includes clinical, administrative, educational, consultative and research functions.20  Notes:   Information on registered psychiatric nurses (RPNs) was prepared from data maintained by the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of British Columbia (CRPNBC), and includes RPNs who reported a British Columbia address at the date of record.  An RPN may hold either a practisingor non-practising membership with the CRPNBC.  A practising RPN must be employed in nursing.  A non-practising RPN may not actively engage in the practise of psychiatric nursing.  The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when the membership status is practising and employment address is available.  In December 1999 and January 2001, employment address was available for 95% and 94% of practising RPNs respectively.  Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for RPNs with non-practising status.   In 2001, 362 practising and 89 non-practising RPNs held dual registration with the Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia (RNABC) and the CRPNBC.  The numbers for 1999 were 359 practising and 117 non-practising nurses.  Dual registrants are included in both the RN and RPN categories.  DIETITIANS AND NUTRITIONISTS  Definition:  A dietitian/nutritionist  ...is a professional uniquely prepared for the practise of nutrition care through university education and required practicum in food and nutrition as well as biological, social and management sciences.  The dietitian/nutritionist applies knowledge and skills in normal and therapeutic nutrition and in food service systems management to individuals, groups, institutions, organisations and the community.21                                                   20  Adapted from information provided by the Registered Psychiatric Nurses Association of British Columbia.   See also National Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 31, No. 3152, Ottawa; Employment and Immigration Canada. 21  Adapted from information pr vided by the Canadian Dietetic Association.  See also Nation  Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 31, No. 3132, Ottawa; Employment and Immigration Canada. 89   Notes:   Information on registered dietitians and nutritionists (RDNs) was derived from the membership database of the British Columbia Dietitians' and Nutritionists' Association (BCDNA), and includes RDNs who reported a British Columbia address at the date of record.  The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when employment is reported and when employment address is available.  In 1999, employment address was available for 97% of RDNs employed in dietetics/nutrition, and in 2001, employment address was available for 97% of employed RDNs.  Home address was used for the remainder.   Age and sex information are no longer available, as the BCDNA no longer collects these data, thus age and sex information is not included this year for RDNs.  MASSAGE THERAPISTS  Definition: A massage therapist  ...provides assessment, treatment and prevention of soft tissue and joint disorders, dysfunction or injury using treatment methods which include (but are not limited to) manual techniques, hydrotherapy, light therapy, electrical modalities, therapeutic exercise and patient education to rehabilitate, relieve pain and promote overall health.22  Notes:   Information on massage therapists (MTs) was prepared from registration data maintained by the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC), and reflects members who reported a British Columbia address at the date of record.  MTs may register with the CMTBC as either Active orInactive Registrants.  Active Registrants are massage therapists who have passed registration examinations and are qualified to practise in massage therapy in British Columbia.  Inactive Registr nts are members of the CMTBC who are not currently practising massage therapy in British Columbia.  The data in the tables are pres nted based on employment address when the registration status is Active, when employment in massage therapy is reported, and when employment address is available.  In Janaury 2000 and December 2000, employment address was available for 95% of Active Registrant massage therapists employed in massage therapy.  Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for those who are not employed in massage therapy, and for MTs with Inactive registration status.  OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS  Definition:  An occupational therapist  ...plans and carries out individually designed programs of activity for patients with physical or mental health problems to enhance their ability to care for themselves and to engage in work and recreational pursuits.  Occupational therapists perform some or all of the following duties:  (a) observe patients and consult physicians' prognoses to assess patients' emotional and physical capacities;                                                   22  Adapted from information provided by the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia.90   (b) develop treatment programs which may include manual and creative arts, industrial and vocational skills and recreational activities; (c) implement the treatment programs and evaluate their progress; (d) maintain clinical and statistical records; (e) advise on health risks in the workplace or participate in other programs, such as pre-retirementprograms, to prevent physical or mental health problems; (f) conduct research in occupational therapy;(g) act as an occupational therapy consultant or educator.23  Notes:   Information on occupational therapists (OTs) was prepared from registration data maintained by he College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia (COTBC), and includes COTBC registrants who reported a British Columbia address at the date of record.  OTs who are also registered with the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia (CPTBC) are included in both the occupational therapy and physical therapy categories.  The exact number of personnel who are registered with both the COTBC and the CPTBC is not known, so the extent of double-counting of personnel in these two groups can not be determined.   Previous editions of INVENTORY and INVENTORY UPDATE presented data supplied by the B.C. Society of Occupational Therapists (BCSOT), a voluntary membership group.  Beginning this year, data were supplied by the new regulatory body f  OTs, the College of Occupational Therapists of B.C. (COTBC).  With the change in the source of data, from a voluntary membership group, where membership was not required for employment as an OT, to a regulatory body, where registration is mandatory for employment as an OT, the data this year are not comparable to previous year’s data.  Age and sex information was also not included this year, as these data were unavailable at the time of publication from the COTBC.   OTs may hold Full, Provisional, Temporary or Non-Practising registration with the COTBC.  OTs who register as Provisional generally have met the educational and competency requirements of Full registration, but have either not completed the national certification exam of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists, or have been found to require minimal educational upgrading prior to being granted Full registration.  OTs temporarily working in the province of British Columbia and who are fully registered in another jurisdiction, may register with the COTBC as Temporary registrants for a maximum of 120 days.  Non-Practising OTs meet the requirements for Full registration, but are not currently practicing occupational therapy (there were no Non-Practising registrants in May 2001).  The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when the membership status is full, provisional or temporary, and when employment address is available.  In May 2001, employment address was available for 90.6% of full, provisional or temporary OTs.  H me address is used for the remainder.                                                    23  Adapted from National Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 31, No. 3143, Ottawa: Employment and Immigration Canada. 91   PHYSICAL THERAPISTS  Definition: A physical therapist (formerly a physiotherapist)  ...provides physical, diagnostic and rehabilitative services to patients with physical dysfunctions caused by trauma, congenital abnormality, disease, surgery, obstetrical and gynaecological conditions, and aging processes, to restore and/or achieve optimal function.  Physical therapists perform some or all of the following duties:  (a) administer tests and examine, observe and take a full history of patients, to determine condition and status; (b) develop, plan, co-ordinate, monitor and adjust a rehabilitation treatment program appropriate to a condition, to achieve objectives, either on an individual or group basis; (c) provide consultation to physicians, dentists, other health professionals, teachers or others appropriate to the case; (d) instruct, advise and co-ordinate programs of remedial modalities for continuation of treatment; (e) recommend referral to other health centres, clinics or treatment facilities as appropriate; (f) provide consultation and direction to nurses, aides and activity workers, to assist in their methods of handling the patient; (g) advise, teach, counsel and educate the patient, his/her family and/or caregivers on correct positions, aids, methods and means of movement for the affected part or the body as a whole; (h) conduct screening and other health promotion methods to facilitate physical health and prevent the premature dysfunction of the body; (i) conduct research projects relating to any of the above to advance the state of knowledge in this field.24  Notes:   Information on physical therapists (PTs) was prepared from registration data maintained by the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia (CPTBC), and includes PTs who reported a British Columbia address at the date of record.  PTs who also are also registered with the College of Occupational Therapists of B.C. (COTBC) are included in both the physical therapy and occupational therapy categories.  The exact number of personnel who are registered with both the CPTBC and the COTBC is not known, so the extent of double-counting of personnel in these two groups cannot be determined.   During the preparation of ROLLCALL UPDATE 00, data errors were discovered in the June 2000 PT data, which appeared in ROLLCALL 99 and INVENTORY 99.  These errors originated from the source of the data.  So far, attempts by CPTBC to reconstruct accurate June 2000 data have been unsuccessful.  As a result, March 1999 data from INVENTORY UPDATE 98 are presented for comparative purposes in the tables this year.  Thus all comparisons are across 25 months rather than the typical INVENTORY UPDATE period of approximately 12 months.  This should be kept in mind when interpreting the data.    Please note, two major changes have occurred in the registration categories since INVENTORYUPDATE 98 was published.  As of April 1999, PTs can register with the CPTBC as full, interim, limited or inactive registrants.  The CPTBC replac d the former registration category of “limited” with the registration category “interim”.  A PT may work as an interim (formerly limited) registrant until all                                                   24  Adapted from National Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 31, No. 3142, Ottawa: Employment and Immigration Canada. 92   qualifications for membership are met.  The CPTBC has also created a new registration category titled “limited”.  Limited registrant PTs are restricted to practice only in a specific area and/or under supervision and/or in a limited capacity.25  There was only 1 limited registrant in 2001, he/she is included with the full registrants for 2001 in all tables.  Remedial gymnasts may also register as members of the CPTBC but are not included in the tables.   The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when the registration status is full, interim or limited, when employment in physical therapy is reported, and when employment address is available.  In 1999 and 2001, employment address was available for 98% of full, interim or limited PTs employed in physical therapy.  Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for PTs with full, interim or limited status who are not employed in physical therapy, and for PTs with inactive registration status.                                                   25  Adapted from the Bylaws of the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia, dated April 15, 1999. 93    94   APPENDIX B  MAP OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  BY HEALTH AUTHORITIES  95    96   Conversion Summary:  B.C.
