As part of the BC Allied Health Provincial Consultation process, the Ministry of Health has developed an online survey to collect allied health data in seven key areas of focus:
- identity and recognition
- workforce and practice optimization
- education and training
- partnerships and collaboration
The Ministry has developed a comprehensive survey targeting the allied health workforce, including frontline, supervisory, and management positions in the public and private practice settings.
All Registered Audiologists (RAUDs), Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioners (RHIPs), and Registered Speech-Language Pathologists (RSLPs) in BC are eligible to participate in the survey that will run from June 22nd to July 13th. The Ministry is asking members of the allied health workforce to contribute their thoughts and inform this important work by completing the survey available here.
The results of the survey will provide valuable insight to the current state of allied health in BC, from the perspective of allied health professionals, related to the seven core themes above. Data collected via the online surveys and focus groups will be aggregated, themed, and incorporated into a “What We Heard” report that will be developed and shared with key stakeholders later this summer/early fall to validate the initial findings. This will help to inform the Ministry’s three-year strategic plan for the Allied Health Policy Secretariat.
On behalf of W. Mark A. Armitage, Assistant Deputy Minister, Ministry of Health, CSHBC thanks all registrants for completing the survey. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the College at [email protected] .
