The BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) has announced there is no longer a Bicillin L-A shortage, as per our April 28 announcement. The use of Bicillin L-A for the treatment of syphilis (and clients who are contacts to syphilis) may resume as per the Treatment of STI Contacts DST.
While the diagnosis and treatment of syphilis are NOT within the scope of RN(C)s, the treatment of sexual contacts to a person diagnosed with syphilis IS within RN(C) scope of practice.
