The Ministry of Health and BC health authorities have announced improvements to BC palliative care benefits, effective Oct. 29, 2015. These changes were effected after analysis of feedback about benefits from practitioners.
The changes allow physicians and nurse practitioners to improve assessment of a patient’s eligibility, to confirm coverage is in place, and to discontinue coverage for those patients who no longer qualify for the benefits.
Nurse practitioners are encouraged to review the
Ministry of Health information sheet (PDF) for all the information.
