​​Posted Sep​​t. 30, 2014

The Ministry of Health has updated the Encounter Codes and the Encounter Reporting Online Resource Manual. Access the codes and manual​

The revised Encounter Codes, which reflect NP practice, have a format similar to that of physician fee codes and will assist in the ongoing planning and evaluation of NP programs.

Encounter Code Working Group

The revised codes and manual were completed through the efforts of the Ministry’s Encounter Code Working Group which includes representation of:

  • NP leads and practising NPs from each health authority,
  • BC Nurse Practitioner Association,
  • Chief Nursing Officers Council, and
  • CRNBC.

The Working Group will meet in November and will evaluate the success of the revised codes and resource manual, and make any necessary changes then.
