(The first INVENTORY was publishedin 1974.) The information in these tables isderived fTom ROLLCALL 95, a regular publicationof the Health Human Resources Unit (HHRU), andthe databases of regulatorybodies, professional associations and surveysconducted by the HHRU. Thetables included in this report have been generatedin response to a growingneed for regional informationin BritishColumbia. They have been pnblishedin this format to increase the usabilityof ROLLCALLinformation,but are not meant to replace that volume, whichoffers more detailed informationabout thethirty-sevenhealth occupations or groups.Table I gives a brief outline, for each professional group,of the source of data and the dates ofrecord used in producing these tables.Table 1Source of Data and Date of Record for Selected Health Personnel in B.C.xiOccupationAdministrative ServicesHealth Record PersonnelHealth Services ExecutivesDental ServicesCertified Dental AssistantsDental HygienistsDental TechniciansDentistsDcnturistsHealth StandardsPublic Health InspectorsLaboratory & TherapeuticTechnological ServicesCardiology TechnologistsClinical Engineers & Biomedical EngineeringTechnologists & TechniciansClinical PcrfusionistsDiagnostic Medical SonographersMedical Laboratory TechnologistsMedical Radiation TechnologistsRespiratory TherapistsMedical & Treatment ServicesChiropractorsEmergency Medical AssistantsFirst RespondersNaturopathic PhysiciansOptometristsPharmacistsPhysiciansPodiatristsSource of DataHealth RecordAssociation of R.C.Canadian Collegeof Health Service Executives, HealthAdministrators'Associationof British Columbia, American Collegeof HealthcareExecutivesand the Ministry of HealthCollege of DentalSurgeons of H.C.n.c.

Users of thesedata shouldbe awarethat not all of these healthprofessionshave a mandatory registration requirement. Whenthere is no registration requirement, data is takenfrom membership associations, some of whichare thought to representa large proportionof thoseworking in the field. There are, however, a certainnumberof healthprofessionals who are not membersof these professional associations and are therefore not countedin these tables. It is impossible toestimate how manypeople this represents and wheretheylive or work.As with the membership groups, the HHRUsurvey groups likely under-estimate the number ofhealth personnel in these professions. The HHRUcompiles a list of potential employers for each groupthat is surveyedand contacts the employers in order to createan employeelist. This list is then used asa database to generate the census surveys. While the HHRU attempts to reach all potential employersin the province,it is probablethat some are missed. This is especially true for the clinicalengineers andbiomedical engineering technologists andtechnicians who are oftenemployed by small servicecompanies. Furthermore, responserates to the census surveysare less than perfect resulting in someuncertainty in the estimates for these groups. This method of data collectionalso prevents the HHRUfrom estimating the size of the potential workforce (i.e., thosetrainedbut not currentlyemployed in thefield). At this point, it is impossible to assess the extentof under- or over-representation in each of thehealth humanresourcesgroups.Table 2 also shows the varying proportions of cach groupthat areknown to be working in the field,comparedto those that are not, and those for whomwork statusis unknown. The tables in the rest ofthis publicationuse tota!numbcrs for the group, as thisrepresents the potential workforce in eachregion. The distinction betweenpotential workforce and employed workforce is an importantone forhealthplanners to make; the former represents healthhumanresources available to the region, whilethelatter is healthhumanresources currently in use. More information about theemployed workforce isavailable in ROLLCALL 95.Table 2Health Personnel in British Columbia byMandatorylVoluntary Registration by Employment Status, 1995Employed Not Employed Employment Statusin Field 1 in Fteld 2 Unknown TOTALCompulsory Registration GroupsCertified Dental Assistants 4,352 4,352Dental Hygienists3 796 67 612 1,475Dental Technicians 37 549 586Dentists 70 2,233 2,303Denturists 17 227 244Chiropractors 557 557Emergency Medical Assistants 2,754 2,754First Responders4 5,927 2 5,929Naturopathic Physicians 93 93Optometrists 286 286Pharmacists 2,389 344 2,733Physicians 8,416 8,416Podiatrists 71 71Licensed Practical Nurses 4,626 987 60 5,673Registered Nurses 27,418 2,709 825 30,952Licensed Graduate Nurses 353 28 8 389Registered Psychiatric Nurses 2,316 365 2,681Psychologists 741 89 4 834Massage Therapists 760 18 159 937Physical 'Therapists 1,786 241 155 2,182Sub Totals 49,866 4,972 18,609 73,447Voluntary Membership GroupsHealth Record Personnel 27 384 411Health Services Executives 483 483Public Health Inspectors 307 307Cardiology Technologists 264 48 312Clinical Pcrfusicnists 28 2 30Counsellors 888 888Medical Laboratory Technologists 479 2,764 3,243Medical Radiation Technologists 1,514 11 14 1,539Respiratory 'Therapists 289 53 342Dietitians and Nutritionists 645 113 1 759Nutrition Managers 247 247Audiologists & Speech/Language Pathologists 424 36 460Occupational Therapists 732 90 7 829Prosthetists and Orthotists 59 59Sub Totals 4,203 722 4,984 9,909HHRU Survey GroupsClinical Engineers and Biomedical EngineeringTechnologists and Technicians 169 9 122 300Diagnostic Medical Sonographers 213 10 134 357Social Workers in Health Care 982 35 30 1,047Sub Totals 1,364 S4 286 1,7041 Includes personnel who are known to be employed in the field as reported by the regulatorybody, membership society, or on theIUIRU survey.2 Includes personnel who have a membership or registrationstatus which makes rhcm ineligiblefor employment in the field,and those who are reported as "employedin another field", "unemployed","on leave" or "not practicing"by the regulatorybody, membershipsociety, or on the lfi.IRU survey.3 Employment information compiled from a HHRU mailsurvey (60%response rate).4 Information is collected only for uiosc known to be employed lIS first responders. However, acting as a first responder is not the primary duty of this employmentgroup (i.c., most arc firemen or policemen).xiiixivSince the pnblication of ROLLCALL 93, the Central Fraser Valley Health Region has beeneliminated. ROLLCALL UPDATE 94 and INVENTORY UPDATE 94 were prodnced incorporating thatchange. A map of British Columbia by Health Regions is included in Appendix B, along with a tablethat lists Local Health Areas by Health Region. As a result of this change, the three health regions thatabsorbed the Central Fraser Valley Health Region (Upper Fraser Valley, South Fraser Valley andSimon Fraser) will have numbers that do not match and are not easily comparable to those frompnblications earlier to 1994. A further change since 1993 is in the names of several Health Regions.Table 3 snmmarizes these changes.Table 3Summary of Changes in Health Region NamesOld Health Region NameCentral KootenaySonth OkanaganSOUUl CentralBoundaryUpper IslandSkeenaPeace RiverCapital Regional DistrictNew Health Region NameWest Kootenay - BoundarySOUUl Okanagan - SimilkameenThompson ValleySOUUl Fraser ValleyNorUl Island/MidCoastNortil WestPeaceRiver - LiardCapital HealthThe main body of this publication is comprised of tables, starting with a set for B.C. as a whole,and followed by tables grouped by Health Region. The first table for each Health Region showsnumber and number per 10,000 population in 1993 and 1995 as well as the average annual rates ofchange in these numbers for each occupation. The average annual rate of change in number is thegrowth in the number of the health workforce for the year, while the average annual rate of change inratio shows the growth in the number of the health workforce in relation to the growth in the population.For the latter statistic, a positive number indicates the health workforce grew faster than the generalpopnlation, and a negative number indicates the health workforce grew more slowly than the generalpopnlation. This first table also inclndes numbers of regional hospital beds, community pharmacies,and regional popnlations.The second table for each Health Region shows age and sex distribution for each of the groups forwhich it is available from ROLLCALL 95. The final table produced for each Health Region showsplace of graduation information for those groups contained in the HHRU biennial series PLACE OFGRADUATION.Appendix A is a compilation of information for each health profession taken from ROLLCALL 95.Included are scope of practice and definition of types of registration status as well as other informationthat may be useful in using the tables. Employment address is used wherever possible to locate thehealth professionals. Specific percentages of home vs. employment or other address are outlined foreach group. All of this information should be considered when interpreting numbers from the tables inthis document.REGIONAL DISTRIBUTIONS2Table IB.C.-TOTALHealth Personnel, Hospital Beds, Community Pharmacies and Population1993 and 1995'Number PCI' Average AnnualNumber 10,000 })opulatioll Rate of ChangeHealth GI'OUp 1993 1995 1993 1995 Numberl RntioJAdministrative ServicesHealth Record Personnel (I-IRABC) 439 411 1.23 1.09 -3.70 -6.48Health Service Executives (Members) ilIa 483 n/a 1.28 n/a iliaDental ServicesCertified Dental Assistants 4,067 4,352 11.38 11.57 3.18 0.76Dental Hygienists (Full & Conditional License) 1,227 1,433 3.43 3,81 6.40 4.24Dental Technicians 578 586 1.62 1.56 0.69 -1.86Dentists 2,152 2,303 6.02 6.
