The information in these tables isderived from ROLLCALL 97, a regular publication of the Health Human Resources Unit (HHRU), andthe databases of regulatory bodies and professional associations. The tables included in this report havebeen generated in response to a growing need for regional information in British Columbia. They havebeen published in this format to increase the usability of ROLLCALL information, but are not meant toreplace that volume, which offers more detailed information about the thirty-six health occupations orgroups. We are pleased to announce that this report will soon be available on the Centre for HealthServices and Policy Research web site (www.chspr.ubc.ca) under "Publications" - "Chronologicallisting of reports" - "Health Human Resources Unit".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.xiooOccupationAdministrative ServicesHealthRecordPersonnelHealthServicesExecutivesDental ServicesCertifiedDentalAssistantsDental HygienistsDentalTechniciansDentistsDenturistsHealth StandardsEnvironrnental HealthOfficersLaboratory & TherapeuticTechnological ServicesCardiology TechnologistsClinicalPerfusionistsDiagnostic Medical SonograpbersMedical Laboratory TechnologistsMedical Radiation TechnologistsRespiratory TherapistsMedical & Treatment ServicesChiropractorsEmergency Medical AssistantsFirst RespondersNaturopathic PhysiciansOpticiansOptometristsPhannacistsPhysiciansPodiatristsSource of DataHealthRecordAssociation of B.C.CanadianCollegeof HealthServiceExecutives.Health Administrators' Association of BritishColumbia. &American Collegeof Healthcare ExecutivesCollegeof DentalSurgeonsof B.C.Collegeof DentalHygienists of B.C.Collegeof DentalTechnicians of B.C.Collegeof DentalSurgeonsof B.C.Collegeof Denturists of B.C.B.C.RegionalHealthBoards & CommunityHealthServicesSocieties. & HealthCanadaCardiology Technologists Association of B.C.CanadianSocietyof ClinicalPerfusionistsB.C.

Users of these data should be aware that not all of these health professionshave a mandatory registration requirement. When there is no registration requirement, data are takenfrom membership associations, some of which are thought to represent a large proportion of thoseworking in the field. There are, however, a certain number of health professionals who are not membersof these professional associations and are therefore not counted in these tables. It is impossible toestimate how 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 employed workforce is an important one forhealth planners to make; the former represents health human resources available to the region, while thelatter is health human resources currently in use. More information about the employed workforce isavailable in ROLLCALL 97.Since the publication of INVENTORY 95, there have been minor changes to the boundaries of theHealth Regions (HR'S) used in INVENTORY (see Appendix B for details). These changes are the resultof revisions made by the B.c. Ministry of Health to the Local Health Area (LHA) boundaries on whichthe Health Regions are based'. Only a small number of communities have been affected by the1 Beginning in 1995, a process ofregionalization began in B.C. Between that time and the present, December 1997, newhealth authority regions have been created . These include the current eleven Regional Health Boards (RHB's), the thirty­four Community Health Councils (CHC's), and the seven Community Health Services Societies (CHSS's). The geographicboundaries of the various new health authority regions could no longer easily be translated to the existing Local HealthArea (LHA) and Health Region (HR) boundaries, so the LHA's and HR's were revised in the spring of 1997.ooo revisions to the LHA's and the HR's, A list of those communities which now appear in a Health Regiondifferent than that in which they appeared in 1995 is provided in Appendix B. All tables showing inter­temporal comparisons of personnel for 1995 and 1997 have been computed using the most recent HRboundaries.Table 2Health Personnel in British Columbia byMandatorylVoluntary Registration by Employment Status, 1995xiiiNot EiqlloyDI!DtEiqlloyed EiqJloyed StatusMANDATORY REGISTRATION GROUPS inField) InFIelcr Unknown TOTALCertified IbIta1 Assistants (COSOC) 4,803 4,803Dental Hygienists (CDHBC) 1,421 91 122 1,634IbIta1 Technicians (CDTBC) 548 548IbItists (COSEC) 94 2,401 2,495IbIturists «(DOC) 14 216 230ClJirqJractas (BCCC) 646 646&rergencyMldicalAssistants (EMAlB) 2,773 2,773FirstRespooders~ (EMAlB) 7,'2h6 5 7,VlNaturopathic Physicians (ANPBC) 119 119Opticians (CDOC) 993 175 28 1,196q,tarelrists (BCAO) 311 311Pharmacists (CPBC) 2,477 384 2,861Physicians (CPSBC &MSC) 8,636 8,636Ptxliatrists (BCAP) 79 790 licensed Practical Nurses (BCClPN) 4,485 744 23 5,252Registered Nurses (RNABC) V,642 3,457 31,099licensed Graduate Nurses (RNABC) 294 V 321Registered Ps}dtiatricNurses (RPNAOC) 2,210 355 2,565Psychologists (CPBC) 787 99 0 886Massage Therapists (CMfBC) 905 13 267 1,185Physical Therapists (CPI'BC) 1,864 263 206 2,333SUBTOTAL 53,117 5,716 18,410 77~VOLUNrARYMEMBERSlDPGROUPSH:althRecxrd PersameJ (HRABC) 314 29 41 384H:alth Services Executives (<:x::.mE, HAABC & ArnE) 438 438Environm:ntal H:althOfficers (Be healthauthaities & Health Canada) 305 305Cardiol<ID'Technologists (crAB:) 249 9 258Oinical Perfusicnists (CSQJ) 30 30DiagnaiticMedical Sonographers (BOlS &ARDMl) 378 378MldicalI...aIxratay Ttrlmologists (CSLT/c)MU) 400 2,556 2,956MldicalRadiation Technologists (BCAMRT) 1,429 49 70 1,548Respiratay Therapists (BCSRI) 430 430Dietitians andNutritiooists (BCDNA) 782 782Nutrition Managers (PSNM&C)NM) 255 255Camsellas (BCAOC) 808 808Audiologists &SpeechlLanguage Pathologists (BCASlPA) 460 32 <InQx:upational Therapists (BCSOI) 775 102 3 880Prosthetists and O1hctists (CECPO& CAPO) 64 64SUBTOTAL 3,562 580 5,866 10,fn11 Includes personnel whoare knownto be employedin the fieldas reportedby theregulatory body,or membership societyor association.2 Includes personnel whohavea membership or registration stalUs whichmakesthemineligible foremploymentin the field,and thosewhoarereportedas0"employed in anotherfield", "unemployed", "onleave" or "not practicing" by theregulatory body, or membership societyor association.3 Information is collectedonlyfor thoseknownto be employedandcertifiedas firstresponders.

The first table for each Health Region showsnumber and number per 10,000 population in 1995 and 1997 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 generalpopulation, and a negative number indicates the health workforce grew more slowly than the generalpopulation. This first table also includes numbers of regional hospital beds, community pharmacies,and regional populations.The second table for each Health Region shows age and sex distribution for each of the groups forwhich it is available from ROLLCALL 97. The fmal 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 97.Included are scope of practice and defmition 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.2 Average annual rates of change (in percent) in the number of personnel are computed as follows:[(Personnel 1997/Personnel 1995)I21n -1] x 100.where nenumber of months separating the 1995 and 1997 data based on the dates of record listed for each group .Average annual rates of change (in percent) in the number of personnel relative to the change in population are computedas follows:[{(Personnel 1997IPersonnei 1995) x (Population 1995/Population 1997)} 121n- 1] x 100.where nenumoer of months separating the two sets of data.ooooooREGIONAL DISTRIBUTIONS2 oooTable 1B.C.-TOTAL 3Health Personnel, Hospital Beds, Community Pharmacies and Population1995 and 199710 Number per Average AnnualNumber 10,000 Popu luUon Rale oC ChangeHealth Group 1995 1997 1995 1997 Numberi RaUolAdministrative ServicesHealth RecordPersonnel(HRABC) 411 384 1.09 0.98 -2.87 -4.67Health Service Executives (Members)' nlu 438 nlu 1.12 nlu nluDental ServicesCertIfiedDentll1 Assislllnts' nln 4,803 nln 12.25 niB niBDentll1 Hygienists· . ,475 1,634 3.93 4.17 6.02 3.41Dentll1 Technicians· 518 548 1.38 1.40 3.12 0.69Dentists 2,303 2,495 6.13 6.36 3.76 1.69Denturists6 240 230 0.64 0.59 -2.29 -4.59Health StandardsEnvlronmentll1 Health Officers (BC health authorities& HealthCanada 307 305 0.82 0.78 .(l.36 -2.70lAb. & Therapeutic Tech.ServicesCardiologyTechnologists(CTABC) 312 258 0.83 0.66 -7.82 ·9.53CUnlcnl Perfusionists(CSCP) 28 30 0.07 0.08 3.11 1.13DiagnosticMedical Sonographers( BCUS& ARDMS)' niB 378 niB 0.96 niB niBMedicalLaboratoryTechnologists(CSLT/CSMLS) 3,243 2,956 8.64 7.54 -4.72 ·6.87MedicalRadiationTechnologists(BCAMRl)' nlu 1,548 niB 3.95 nlu niBRespiratoryTherapists (BCSRl) 342 430 0.91 1.10 10.71 8.58Medical& TreatmentServicesOIiropractors 557 646 1.48 1.65 6.81 4.76EmergencyMedicalAssislllnts 2,754 2,773 7.34 7.07 0.36 -1.90First Responders 5.929 7,271 15.79 18.54 10.74 8.35NaturopathicPhysicians 93 119 0.25 0.30 10.01 8.17Opticians7 niB 1,196 niB 3.05 nlu nlaOptometrists 286 311 0.76 0.79 4.10 1.94Pharmacists 2,733 2,861 7.28 7.30 1.85 0.08Physicians(DirectoryActive) 8,416 8.636 22.42 22.02 1.36 .(l.93Podiatrists 71 79 0.19 0.20 5.73 3.350 NursingServicesLicensedPracticalNurses 5,673 5,252 15.11 13.39 -3.78 ·5.86RegisteredNurses 30,952 31,099 82.45 79.30 0.24 -1.93LJcensed GraduateNurses 389 321 1.04 0.82 ·9.16 -11.12RegisteredPsychiatric Nurses 2,681 2,565 7.14 6.54 -2.50 -4.90Nutrition & Dietary ServicesDietitians & Nutritionists(BCDNA) 759 782 2.02 1.99 1.50 .(l.69NutritionManagers (pSNM & CSNM) 247 255 0.66 0.65 1.61 .(l.59Psychological ServicesCounsellors(BCACC)' nIa 808 niB 2.06 nla niBPsychologists 834 886 2.22 2.26 3.07 0.84Rehabilitation ServicesAud. & SpeechlLang.Pathologists(BCASLPA) 460 492 1.23 1.25 2.82 0.83MassageTherapists 937 1,185 2.50 3.02 12.46 10.03OccupationalTherapists(BCSOl) 829 880 2.21 2.24 2.79 0.74PhysicalTherapists (Full & Limited) 2,067 2,156 5.51 5.50 1.76 .(l.06Prosthetists& Orlhotists (CBCPO &.CAPO) 59 64 0.16 0.16 3.98 1.82TOTAL' 75,905 77,903 202.20 198.65 1.31 .(l.88Hospital Beds9AcuII: C= Bed> 9,331 8,847 24.86 22.56 -2.63 -4.73Extendedeare Beds 8,617 8,628 22.95 22.00 0.06 -2.10RehabilillltionBeds 287 242 0.76 0.62 -8.17 -10.16TOTAL BEDS 18,135 17,717 48.58 45.18 ·1.43 ·3.56Community Pharmacies 659 697 1.75 1.77 2.27 0.51PopuloJion 3,753,980 3,921,546 niB nla 2.21 nlaI D'II:. ofrecorddifferforhealth groups, Pieaserefer 10 theIntroductionforspecificdates of record for eachgroup.I Rate of change(in percent) in thenumber.'Rate of change (in percent) in the number per 10,()()() population.• Due lD change. in da la collection, 1995and 1997 number. .... nOl comparable.

The February 1998 data were obtained during a membership renewal cycle and maynot accurately reflect membership at that time. Comparisons with 1995 data should therefore be made withcaution.An active member of the HRABC is a person who has successfully completed a health record programrecognised by the Canadian Health Record Association (CRRA). 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 CRRA.

The information presented in the tables is based on employment address for themajority of counsellors. Precise percentagesof home versus employment or other address, however, are notknown. This is further complicated by the fact that many counsellors work in private practice from theirhomes, thus work and home addresses are identical.The tables by no means represent an exhaustive listing of persons self-identified as counsellors in BritishColumbia. Membership information was requested in 1995 and 1997 from the British Columbia Associationof Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) and the British Columbia Association for Marriage and Family Therapy(BCAMFf) as both bodies require that members meet specific educational and training standards formembership. A further reason for inclusion of both these groups is the minimal degree of overlap betweentheir respective memberships (i.e., only 14 counsellors were members of both organisations in 1995).However, the BCAMFT did not supply any data in 1997, so comparisons to 1995 are not possible and are notpresented.A counsellor may hold a registered or qualifying membership in the BCACC. A registered member hasmet both academic and paid experience requirements for registration. A qualifying member has met theacademic requirements, but not the two year full-time paid experience requirement for registration.
