As part of the multisource feedback process, nurses are expected to seek feedback from both nurse and non-nurse colleagues.
Providing feedback to a nurse colleague via
My Professional Plan is a straightforward and positive experience. It won't take more than a few minutes, and your participation will help your nurse colleague improve their practice.
The CRNBC Quality Assurance program is about protecting the public through assisting nurses in the continual development of professional behaviours that reflect the
CRNBC Professional Standards.
Any information that you provide to us through the feedback questionnaire is protected under the Health Professions Act and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Your feedback will be provided to the nurse who has requested it in aggregate form only.
You are under no obligation to complete an assessment. You should, however, let your colleague know that you will not be providing the feedback, so they can find someone else.
Your name (or any other identifying data) will not be attached to your responses. In addition, a report will not be generated unless a minimum of three colleagues respond, so it will be impossible for the nurse to know who gave which responses.
Your comments, however, will be included in the report exactly as you wrote them, so be careful not to include details that indicate your identity.
No. The multisource feedback process is used to give your observations on your colleague’s practice in order to assist them to identify areas in which they are meeting standards and where they can improve. The multisource feedback process and the questionnaires are not designed to report serious concerns about a nurse’s practice.
If you have any serious concerns about a nurse’s fitness to practice, you must report your concerns to the
Nursing Concerns Coordinator
You can also refer to the
Duty to Report practice standard.
