University of British Columbia.Health Human Resources Unit.RA450.B7I6 610.69’09711’021 C99-301210-8iiHEALTH HUMAN RESOURCES UNITThe Health Human Resources Unit (HHRU) was established as a demonstration project by theBritish Columbia Ministry of Health in 1973.  Since that time, the Unit has continued to befunded on an ongoing basis (subject to annual review) as part of the Centre for Health Servicesand Policy Research.  The Unit undertakes a series of research studies that are relevant tohealth human resources management and to public policy decisions.The HHRU’s research agenda is determined through discussions of key current issues andavailable resources with the senior staff of the Ministry of Health.  Various health care providergroups participate indirectly, through on-going formal and informal communications withMinistry of Health officials and with HHRU researchers.  Arminée Kazanjian is the AssociateDirector and Principal Investigator for the Unit.Three types of research are included in the Unit’s research agenda.  In conjunction withprofessional licensing bodies or associations, the HHRU maintains the Cooperative HealthHuman Resources Database.  The Unit uses these data to produce regular status reports thatprovide a basis for in-depth studies and for health human resources planning.  The Unitundertakes more detailed analyses bearing on particular health human resources policy issuesand assesses the impact of specific policy measures, using secondary analyses of data from theCooperative Database, data from the administrative databases maintained under the HIDU, orprimary data collected through surveys.  The HHRU also conducts specific projects pertainingto the management of health human resources at local, regional and provincial levels.Copies of studies and reports produced by the HHRU are available at no charge.Health Human Resources UnitCentre for Health Services and Policy Research#429-2194 Health Sciences MallVancouver, BCV6T 1Z3Ph:  (604) 822-4810Fax:  (604) 822-5690email:  hhru@chspr.ubc.caURL:  www.chspr.ubc.caiiiACKNOWLEDGEMENTSSpecial appreciation is extended to the regulatory bodies and professional associations, allof whom took the time to answer our written and verbal requests for information.INVENTORY 99 represents the culmination of six intensive months of data collection,consistency checks, table generation, definition and other text verification, proof- eading andanalysis.

The INVENTORY series presents a regional analysis of health personnel in the provinceof British Columbia.  The series has two components - INVENTORY  and INVENTORY UPDATE -which are produced in alternate years.  INVENTORY, published for odd-numbered years, containsinformation derived from the ROLLCALL series about selected health professions for which annualelectronic data are available through the CHHRD.  These data are owned by the regulatory bodies andprofessional associations of each group.The tables included in this report have been generated in response to a need for regional informationabout health human resources planning in British Columbia.  They have been published in this format toincrease the usability of ROLLCALL 99 information, but are not meant to replace that volume, whichoffers more detailed information about the thirty-three health occupations or groups included inINVENTORY 99.Table 1 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.Occupation Source of Data Date of RecordAdministrative ServicesHealth Record Personnel Health Record Association of B.C.

Nodata were received this year from two groups, clinical perfusionists and respiratory therapists.  For twoother health personnel groups, environmental health officers and nutrition managers, the data whichwere received are known to be largely incomplete and probably not an accurate representation of thenumber of persons employed in B.C., so they have not been included.  We refer you instead toINVENTORY 97 for the most recent and accurate data available on these groups.Table 2 is reproduced from the Introduction to ROLLCALL 99 and outlines data sources by type ofhealth personnel group.  Users of these data should be aware that not all of these health personnelgroups have a mandatory registration requirement.  When there is no registration requirement, data aretaken from professional associations, which are thought to represent a large proportion of those workingin the field.  There may be, however, a certain number of health personnel who are not members ofthese professional associations and are therefore not counted in these tables.  It is impossible to estimatehow many people this represents and where they live or work.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 ofthis publication use total numbers for the group, as this represents the potential workforce in eachregion.  The distinction between potential workforce and effective supply is an important one for healthplanners to make; the former represents health human resources available to the region, while the latterrefers to health human resources currently deployed.

Environmental Health Officers     and Nutrition Managers also do not appear in this table as the data received from these groups were incomplete.  Please see the introductory text for details.2  Includes personnel who are known to be employed in the field as reported by the regulatory body, or membership society or association.3  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 society or association.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).Health Authorities (HAs) in British Columbia are now responsible for health human resourcesplanning in their respective regions, thus this edition of INVENTORY presents data by Health Authority(HA) rather than by Health Region (HR) as previous editions of INVENTORY and INVENTORYUPDATE have done.  The Health Authorities used in INVENTORY 99 include the eleven RegionalHealth Boards and the seven Community Health Services Societies.  The boundaries of these HealthAuthorities are similar to those of the Health Regions with only two differences: the health regions ofVancouver and Richmond are combined into the Vancouver/Richmond Regional Health Board; and thehealth regions of Simon Fraser and Burnaby are combined into the Simon Fraser Regional HealthxiBoard.  A map of the province's Health Authorities and a table showing the conversion between LocalHealth Areas, the Health Regions formerly used in INVENTORY and the Health Authorities used in thisedition is found in Appendix B.The population 'projections' used this year are from P.E.O.P.L.E. #24 and are the most recentpopulation 'projections' available from the Population Section, B.C. Stats (July 1999).  All tablesshowing inter-temporal comparisons of personnel per 10,000 population distributions for 1997 and1999 and rates of change for personnel-to-population ratios have been computed using the P.E.O.P.L.E.#24 population data.  Therefore, the 1997 and 1998 personnel to population ratios that appear inINVENTORY 99 may differ from those reported in INVENTORY 97 and INVENTORY UPDATE 98because they have been recalculated based on these updated population data.The main body of this publication is c mprised of tables, starting with a set of tables for provincialtotals and followed by tables grouped by Health Authority, with tables for the eleven Regional HealthBoards appearing first then followed by tables for the seven Community Health Services Societies.  Thefirst table for each Health Authority shows number and number per 10,000 population in 1997 and1999 for each health occupation.  The first table for each Health Authority also shows the averageannual rates of change1 in the number and number per 10,000 population.  The average annual rate ofchange in number is the growth in the number of the health workforce for the year, while the averageannual rate of change in ratio shows the growth in the number of the health workforce in relation to thegrowth in the population.  For the latter statistic, a positive number indicates the health workforce grewfaster than the general population, and a negative number indicates the health workforce grew moreslowly 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 groupsfor which it is available from ROLLCALL 99.  The final table produced for each Health Authorityshows place of graduation information for those groups contained in the HHRU biennial series PLACEOF GRADUATION.Appendix A is a compilation of information for each health profession excerpted from ROLLCALL99.  Included are definitions of types of registration status as well as other information that may beuseful in using the tables.  Employment address is used wherever possible to locate the healthprofessionals.  Specific percentages of home vs. employment or other address are outlined for eachgroup.

The February 1998 data were obtained during a membership renewal cycle and maynot accurately reflect membership at that time.  Comparisons with 2000 data should therefore be made withcaution.An active member of the HRABC is a person who makes application thereto and who establishes to thesatisfaction of the Executive Committee that s/he has successfully completed a health record programrecognised by the Canadian Health Record Association (CHRA).  An affiliate member is a person who doesnot qualify for active membership, but is either engaged in the record department in a hospital or other alliedfield; or a student enrolled in a health record program that is recognised by the CHRA.

In 1997, membership data for the Health Administrators’ Association of British Columbia(HAABC) were also included in the tables, but as the HAABC no longer exists in 1999, no data wereavailable.  The data include health services executives who reported a British Columbia address at the date ofrecord.  Data presented are based on employment address for the majority of health services executives.Precise percentages of home versus employment or other address are not known.  Comparison with 1997figures is of limited value and has not been presented.  Excluded from the tables are inactive, student, retired,life, honorary, corporate and other members of the CCHSE or ACHE who are not considered to be part of thework force.CERTIFIED DENTAL ASSISTANTSDefinition: A certified dental assistant (dental auxiliary - level II)...may be delegated the following duties and procedures under the personal supervision of a duly licensedmember of the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia:(a) those duties or procedures which a dental assistant (dental auxiliary - level I) may perform;4(b) polishing clinical crowns of teeth with rubber cup or brush and polishing pastes;(c) applying topical anticariogenic agents;(d) taking study model impressions;(e) applying fissure sealants;(f) evaluating dietary habits and providing nutritional counselling as it pertains to dentistry;(g) providing instruction in the use and maintenance of partial and complete dentures and other appliances;(h) removing sutures;(i) placing and removing matrices and wedges;(j) performing first aid procedures;(k) applying desensitising agents;(l) removing periodontal dressings;(m)performing pulp vitality tests using electric pulp tester and thermal pulp tester;(n) taking simple face-bow transfer;(o) acid etching prepared cavities;(p) applying non-invasive identification discs(q) other procedures that the general examination committee may authorise while the certified dentalassistant is participating in courses of study and training approved by the general examination committee,and subject to the requirements of that committee with respect thereto;(r) applying treatment liners in teeth without pulpal involvement;(s) removing retraction cord.5On successful completion of the specific training module concerned, a certified dental assistant may alsobe delegated the following duties and procedures under the personal supervision of a licensed member:(a) instructing in the placement and care of removable orthodontic appliances;(b) tying-in arch wires that a dentist has fitted;                                                          4  Regulations of The College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia, Auxiliary Bodies, revised May 1995, Article 10.16.

Data presented in the tables are based on home address for the majority of certifieddental assistants.  Precise percentages of home versus employment or other address are not known.  CDAscan register with the CDSBC as either licensed (formerly active) or non-practising.  Licensed CDAs maylegally practise their skills in B.C., non-practising CDAs remain on the register but may not practise.DENTAL HYGIENISTSDefinition: A dental hygienist... assesses the status of teeth and adjacent tissues and provides preventive and therapeutic dental hygienecare for teeth and adjacent tissues.  The range of activities for a dental hygienist include:(a) clinical therapy;(b) health promotion;(c) education;(d) administration;(e) research.7Notes:Information on dental hygienists was prepared from registration data maintained by the College of DentalHygienists of British Columbia (CDHBC), and includes dental hygienists who reported a British Columbiaaddress at the date of record.  Data presented in the tables are based on home address for the majority ofdental hygienists.  Precise percentages of home versus employment or other address are not known.                                                          6  Regulations, op. cit., revised April 1996, Article 10.19.7  Adapted from the regulations of the College of Dental Hygienists of British Columbia, Section 4.  See also NationalOccupational Classification 1992, Major Group 32, No. 3222, Ottawa:  Employment and Immigration Canada.82Dental hygienists included in these tables may be registered with the CDHBC as Full, Limited,Residential Care or Non-Practising registrants.  Full, Limited and Residential Care registrants are those whomay legally practice as dental hygienists in B.C.  Limited registrants (formerly Conditionally licensed)hygienists are qualified to practise as dental hygienists, except that they are not authorised to administer localanaesthesia.  Residential Care registrants meet all requirements for Full registration plus additionalqualifications.  Residential Care registration allows hygienists working in approved residential or long termcare facilities to practice without a prior dentist examination of clients.8The CDHBC amended its bylaws, and made several changes to their registration categories since 1997:they have dropped the use of the term licence in their registration categories; the registration category ofConditional has been replaced by the category of Limited; the registration category of Residential Care is newin 1999 for dental hygienists; and the Community Health (formerly dental public health hygienists)registration category has been eliminated and the CDHBC has “rolled” the former Community Healthlicensed hygienists into the Full registration category.8  As a result, the December 1997 data shown in thetables will differ from the December 1997 data shown in the ROLLCALL 97 and INVENTORY 97 tableswhere the Community Health licensed hygienists were included within the Conditional licence category.DENTAL TECHNICIANSDefinition: A dental technician...may, if the services can be performed without intraoral procedures or the taking of impressions:(a) make, produce, reproduce, construct, furnish, supply, alter or repair a denture, bridge or prostheticappliance to be used in, on, in connection with, or in the treatment of a human tooth, jaw or associatedstructure or tissue in accordance with a prescription9 to perform any of those services;(b) make structural repairs to a removable dental prostheses or replace teeth in a denture without aprescription10;(c) supervise other registrants classified as students, temporary registrants and/or assistants in accordancewith a supervision ratio specified in the Dental Technician Rules.10Notes:Information on dental technicians was prepared from data supplied by the College of Dental Techniciansof British Columbia (CDTBC), and includes dental technicians who reported a British Columbia address atthe date of record.  The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when employmentaddress is available.  In 1997 and 1999, employment address was available for 91% and 95% of dentaltechnicians, respectively.  Home address is used for the remainder.A Registered ental technician is licensed by the CDTBC.  A Studenttechnician is enrolled in a dentaltechnician training program listed in Schedule A of the Dental Technician Rules, and is registered by theCDTBC.  After 18 months work experience, a Student technician is eligible to undertake the certifying examsto become a Registered dental technician.  Prior to a change in the CDTBC bylaws in September 1997,students could remain registered with the CDTBC in the Student registration category for up to five years,thus the Student registration category, could in the past, contain multiple classes of students.  The Studentregistration category now contains only students enrolled in the current class, i.e. only students in the current                                                          8  Adapted from information supplied by the CDHBC.9  "Prescription" refers to a document signed and dated by a dentist or medical practitioner that directs a dental technician toperform a service in accordance with the technician’s certificate of registration.10  Adapted from information received from the College of Dental Technicians of British Columbia (CDTBC).83school year may be registered as Students.11  Thus, the data from 1997 for the registration category ofStudent are not comparable to the data for 1999, and have not been presented this year.  Only the data onRegistered dental technicians appear in the table this year.DENTISTSDefinition: A dentist...diagnoses and treats disorders of the teeth and mouth.Dentists perform some or all of the following duties:(a) examine patients' teeth, gums, and surrounding tissue to diagnose disease, injury, and decay and planappropriate treatment;(b) restore, extract, and replace diseased and decayed teeth;(c) perform oral surgery, periodontal surgery, and other treatments;(d) clean teeth and instruct patients on oral hygiene;(e) design bridgework, fit dentures and provide appliances to correct abnormal positioning of the teeth andjaws, or write fabrication instructions or prescriptions for use by denturists and dental technicians;(f) supervise dental hygienists, dental assistants and other staff.12Notes:Information on dentists was prepared from registration data maintained by the College of DentalSurgeons of British Columbia (CDSBC), and includes dentists who reported a British Columbia address atthe date of record.

See alsoNational Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 31, No. 3152, Ottawa; Employment and Immigration Canada.43  Effective April 1999, registered psychiatric nurses were designated under the Health Professions Act, R.S.B.C. 1996,Chapter 183, and the Nurses (Registered Psychiatric) Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, Chapter 336 w s repealed.  The College ofRegistered Psychiatric Nurses of British Columbia (CRPNBC) replaced the Registered Psychiatric Nurses Association ofBritish Columbia (RPNABC) as the regulatory body for registered psychiatric nurses at that time.97DIETITIANS AND NUTRITIONISTSDefinition: A dietitian/nutritionist...is a professional uniquely prepared for the practise of nutrition care through university education andrequired practicum in food and nutrition as well as biological, social and management sciences.  Thedietitian/nutritionist applies knowledge and skills in normal and therapeutic nutrition and in food servicesystems management to individuals, groups, institutions, organisations and the community.44Notes:Information on registered dietitians and nutritionists (RDN's) was derived from the membership databaseof the British Columbia Dietitians' and Nutritionists' Association (BCDNA), and includes RDN's whoreported a British Columbia address at the date of record.  The data in the tables are presented based onemployment address when employment in dietetics/nutrition is reported and when employment address isavailable.  In 1997 and 1999, employment address was available for 94% and 97% of RDN's employed indietetics/nutrition.  Home address was used for the remainder, as well as for RDN's who were not employedin dietetics/nutrition.COUNSELLORSDefinition: A counsellor...assists individuals and groups of clients to identify, understand and overcome personal problems or achievepersonal objectives.Counsellors perform some or all of the following duties:(a) Interview clients, prepare case histories and assess problems;(b) develop and implement counselling and intervention programs to assist clients in determining goals andmeans to attain them;(c) counsel clients and provide therapy;(d) evaluate the effectiveness of counselling programs and clients’ progress in resolving identified problemsand movement toward identified objectives;(e) follow up the results of counselling programs and clients’ adjustments;(f) may supervise other counsellors, social service staff and assistants;(g) may provide public education and consultation to other professionals or groups regarding counsellingservices, issues and methods.45Notes:Information on counsellors was derived from membership data obtained from the British ColumbiaAssociation of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC), and includes counsellors who reported a British Columbiaaddress at the date of record.  The information presented in these tables is based on employment address forthe majority of counsellors.  Precise percentages of home versus employment or other address, however, arenot known.  This is further complicated by the fact that many counsellors work in private practice from theirhomes, so work and home addresses are identical.                                                          44  Adapted from information provided by the Canadian Dietetic Association.  See also National Occupational Classification1992, Major Group 31, No. 3132, Ottawa; Employment and Immigration Canada.45  Adapted from National Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 41, No. 4153, Ottawa; Employment andImmigration Canada.98The tables by no means represent an exhaustive listing of persons self-identified as counsellors in BritishColumbia.  Membership information was requested from the British Columbia Association of ClinicalCounsellors (BCACC) and the British Columbia Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (BCAMFT)as both bodies require that members meet specific educational and training standards for membership.  Afurther reason for requesting data from both of these groups is the minimal degree of overlap between theirrespective memberships (i.e., only 14 counsellors were  members of both organisations in 1995).  However,the BCAMFT did not supply data for either INVENTORY 97 or INVENTORY 99, so the tables only includedata on BCACC members.The tables include registered and qualifying members of the BCACC in 1998, and registered membersof the BCACC in 2000.  In 1998, a counsellor could be either a registered or qualifying member in theBCACC, but as of April 1999 the BCACC changed its bylaws eliminating the qualifying member category.A registered member has met both academic and full-time paid experience requirements for registration.  In1998, a qualifying member had met the academic requirements, but not the two year full- ime paid experiencerequirement for registration.  Members of the BCACC who are honorary, inactive, student or retired membersare not included in the tables.PSYCHOLOGISTSDefinition: A psychologist...diagnoses psychological and emotional disorders, counsels clients, provides therapy and research, andapplies theory relating to behaviour and mental processes.Psychologists perform some or all of the following duties:(a) examine behaviour, diagnose psychological and emotional disorders, counsel clients, and providetherapy;(b) counsel individuals and groups to achieve more effective personal, social, and vocational developmentand adjustment;(c) apply psychological theory and principles regarding behaviour and mental processes such as learning,memory, perception, and language development;(d) formulate hypotheses and experimental designs, review literature, conduct studies, and publish researchpapers.46Notes:Information on psychologists was prepared from registration data m intained by the College ofPsychologists of British Columbia (CPBC),47 and includes registered psychologists who reported a BritishColumbia address at the date of record.  Psychologists can register with the CPBC with either practising ornon-practising status.  Members with non-practising status may not offer psychological services to thegeneral public, but may be employed by such institutions as School Boards or Universities.  The data in thetables are presented based on employment address when psychologists report employment in psychology andemployment address is available.  In 1997 and 2000, employment address was available for 98% ofpsychologists employed in psychology.  Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for psychologistsnot employed in psychology.                                                          46  Adapted from National Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 41, No. 4151, Ottawa: Employment andImmigration Canada.47  Please note, effective January 1, 2000, psychologists were designated under the Health Prof ssions Act, R.S.B.C. 1996,Chapter 183, and the Psychologists Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, Chapter 381 was repealed.99AUDIOLOGISTS AND SPEECH/LANGUAGE PATHOLOGISTSDefinition:(I) An audiologist...diagnoses, evaluates, and treats hearing disorders.Audiologists perform some or all of the following duties:(a) administer audiometric tests to diagnose and evaluate the degree and type of hearing impairment;(b) plan and implement rehabilitation programs for patients, including selection and fitting of hearing aids,speech (lip) reading, and counselling;(c) consult with physicians, nurses, psychologists, and other health care personnel to help plan treatmentprograms;(d) conduct research related to hearing;(e) instruct audiology students and other health care personnel in audiology.(II) A speech/language pathologist...diagnoses, evaluates and treats speech, language, and voice disorders.Speech/language pathologists perform some or all of the following duties:(a) administer tests and observe patients to diagnose and evaluate speech, language, and voice disorders;(b) plan and implement remedial programs to correct speech, language, and voice disorders;(c) consult with physicians, nurses, psychologists, and other health care personnel to help plan treatmentprograms;(d) conduct research on speech and other communication disorders and on the development and design ofdiagnostic procedures and devices.48Notes:Information on audiologists and speech/language pathologists was derived solely from the membershiplist supplied by the British Columbia Association of Speech/Language Pathologists and Audiologists(BCASLPA), and includes Full and Life members with a British Columbia address at the date of record.  Thedata in the table are presented based on home address in both 1998 and 2000 for the majority of members.Full members are audiologists and speech/language pathologists in good standing whose number ofcredit hours in designated areas of study correspond to the criteria specified by the BCASLPA bylaws andwho may or may not be employed in the field.  Life members are full members who have been recognised forlong-term employment in audiology and/or speech/language pathology and who may or may not be employedin the field.  They must be sixty years of age or older and have held full membership with the BCASLPA forten years or more.49                                                          48  Adapted from National Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 31, No. 3141, Ottawa: Employment andImmigration Canada.49  Adapted from information provided by the British Columbia Association of Speech/Language Pathologists andAudiologists.100MASSAGE THERAPISTSDefinition: A massage therapist...provides assessment, treatment and prevention of soft tissue and joint disorders, dysfunction or injury usingtreatment 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 promoteoverall health.50Notes:Information on massage therapists (MT’s) was prepared from registration data maintained by the Collegeof Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC), and reflects members who reported a BritishColumbia address at the date of record.  MT’s may register with the CMTBC as either Active (formerly calledFull registrants) or Inactive Registrants.  Active Registrants are massage therapists who have passedregistration examinations and are qualified to practise in massage therapy in British Columbia.  Inac veRegistrants are members of the CMTBC who are not currently practising massage therapy in BritishColumbia.  The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when the registration status isActive, when employment in massage therapy is reported, and when employment address is available.  In1997 and 2000, employment address was available for 94% and 95% of Active Registrant massage therapistsemployed in massage therapy, respectively.  Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for those whoare not employed in massage therapy, and for MT's with Inactive registration status.OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTSDefinition: An occupational therapist...plans and carries out individually designed programs of activity for patients with physical or mental healthproblems 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;(b) develop treatment programs which may include manual and creative arts, industrial and vocational skillsand 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-retirement programs,to prevent physical or mental health problems;(f) conduct research in occupational therapy;(g) act as an occupational therapy consultant or educator.51Notes:Information on occupational therapists (OT’s) was prepared from registration data maintained by theBritish Columbia Society of Occupational Therapists (BCSOT),52 and includes BCSOT members who                                                          50  Adapted from information provided by the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia.51  Adapted from National Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 31, No. 3143, Ottawa: Employment andImmigration Canada.101reported a British Columbia address at the date of record.  OT's who are also registered with the College ofPhysical Therapists of British Columbia (CPTBC) are included in both the occupational therapy and physicaltherapy categories.  The exact number of personnel who are both members of the BCSOT and registered withthe CPTBC is not known, so the extent of double-counting of personnel in these two groups can not bedetermined.OT's may hold a practising membership in the BCSOT and be registered as full-t m, part-time orprovisional members, or hold a non-practising membership in the BCSOT.  OT's who register as provisionalgenerally have met the educational and competency requirements of full-time or part-time membership, buthave not completed the national certification exam of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists.The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when the membership status is registeredor provisional, when employment in occupational therapy is reported, and when employment address isavailable.  In March 1998 and April 2000, employment address was available for 90% and 96% of registeredor provisional OT's employed in occupational therapy, respectively.  Home address is used for the remainder,as well as for OT's with registered or provisional status who are not employed in occupational therapy, andfor OT's with non-practising membership status.PHYSICAL THERAPISTSDefinition: A physical therapist (formerly a physiotherapist)...provides physical, diagnostic and rehabilitative services to patients with physical dysfunctions caused bytrauma, congenital abnormality, disease, surgery, obstetrical and gynaecological conditions, and agingprocesses 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 andstatus;(b) develop, plan, co-ordinate, monitor and adjust a rehabilitation treatment program appropriate to acondition to achieve objectives, either on an individual or group basis;(c) provide consultation to physicians, dentists, other health professionals, teachers or others appropriate tothe 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 ofhandling 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 thepremature dysfunction of the body;(i) conduct research projects relating to any of the above to advance the state of knowledge in this field.53                                                                                                                                                                                        52  Effective December 8, 1998, occupational therapy became a regulated health profession with compulsory registration underthe Health Professions Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, Chapter 183.  The College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia willregulate occupational therapy in British Columbia, but as of the date of record the College of Occupational Therapists ofB.C. had not yet registered members, so these data were obtained, as in the past, from the British Columbia Society ofOccupational Therapists (BCSOT).  Please note, membership in the BCSOT is voluntary.53  Adapted from National Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 31, No. 3142, Ottawa: Employment andImmigration Canada.102Notes:Information on physical therapists (PT's) was prepared from registration data maintained by the Collegeof Physical Therapists of British Columbia (CPTBC), and includes PT’s who reported a British Columbiaaddress at the date of record.  PT's who also hold membership in the British Columbia Society ofOccupational Therapists (BCSOT) are included in both the physical therapy and occupational therapycategories.  The exact number of personnel who are both registered with the CPTBC and members of theBCSOT is not known so the extent of double-counting of personnel in these two groups cannot bedetermined.Two major changes have occurred in the registration categories since INVENTORY 97 and INVENTORYUPDATE 98 were published.  As of April 1999, PT’s can register with the CPTBC as full, interim, limited orinactive registrants.  The CPTBC replaced the former registration category of “limited” with the registrationcategory “interim”.  A PT may work as an interim (formerly limited) registrant until all qualifications formembership are met.  The CPTBC has also created a new registration category titled “limited”.  Limitedregistrant PT’s are restricted to practice only in a specific area and/or under supervision and/or in a limitedcapacity.54  The limited registration category is not shown in the tables as there were no PT’s registered in thenew limited category in June 2000.  Remedial gymnasts may also register as members of the CPTBC but arenot included in the tables.The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when the registration status is full orinterim, when employment in physical therapy is reported, and when employment address is available.  In1998 and 2000, employment address was available for 95% and  96% of full or interim PT's employed inphysical therapy, respectively.  Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for PT's with full orinterim status who are not employed in physical therapy, and for PT's with inactive registration status.PROSTHETISTS AND ORTHOTISTSDefinition: (I)   A prosthetist...is a professional worker who can design, fabricate and fit appropriate appliances and devices designed toreplace part of the human locomotor system.(II)  An orthotist...is a professional worker who can design, fabricate and fit appropriate supports, braces, shoes, remedialappliances and devices designed to correct, develop, strengthen or support and increase the physiologicalperformance of the human locomotor system.55Notes:Information on prosthetists and orthotists was derived from membership lists provided by the B.C.Branch of the Canadian Association of Prosthetists and Orthotists (CAPO), and includes prosthetists andorthotists who were certified with the Canadian Board for Certification of Prosthetists and Orthotists orregistered with the CAPO and reported a British Columbia address at the date of record.  Data presented inthe tables are based on employment address for the majority of prosthetists and orthotists.  Precisepercentages of home versus employment address are not known.                                                          54  Adapted from the Bylaws of the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia, dated April 15, 1999.55  Adapted from information received from the Canadian Board for Certification of Prosthetists and Orthotists.  See alsoNational Occupational Classification 1992, Major Group 32, No. 3219, Ottawa: Employment and Immigration Canada.103Certifees are prosthetists and orthotists who have completed a two-year course of study at an approvedinstitution, completed a two-year internship, passed the national certification exam administered by theCanadian Board for Certification of Prosthetists and Orthotists, and remain in good standing with theCanadian Board for Certification of Prosthetists and Orthotists.  Certifees focus on patient assessment andequipment design, though many certifees also serve as their own technicians.  Registered technicians aretrained in the production of prosthetic and orthotic equipment.  The registered designation is given afterpassing exams standardised by the Canadian Association of Prosthetists and Orthotists (CAPO).  The examscan be taken following completion of a two year training program and two years of work in the field, or afterfour years of work in the field.  Registered technicians generally do not have client contact.If so qualified, an individual may hold dual certification as a prosthetist and orthotist, or registration as atechnician in prosthetics and orthotics.104APPENDIX BMAP OF BRITISH COLUMBIABY HEALTH AUTHORITIES105106Prepared by: Health Human Resources Unit, Centre for Health Services and Policy Research, The University of British ColumbiaConversion Summary:  B.C.
