The Regulatory Direction: Administration and Distribution of Cannabis for Medical Purposes has been posted to the document library under Regulatory Documents. This document contains updated information from the collaborative memo released by ARNNL/CLPNNL on December 3, 2018, titled: ARNNL/CLPNL Direction on the Role of RNs, LPNs, and NPs in Administering and Distribution of Medical Cannabis.
ARNNL is seeking your feedback on a new draft ARNNL document: Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners.
The primary purpose of standards is to identify for nurses, the public, government and other stakeholders, the desired and achievable level of performance expected of nurses in their practice, against which actual performance can be measured.
Please review the draft document before proceeding to the survey. We estimate that it will take 15 minutes to review the document and 10 minutes to complete the survey.
The New PUBLIC HEALTH PROTECTION AND PROMOTION ACT (PHPPA) was enacted on July 1, 2019. This Act mandates health care professionals with the DUTY TO REPORT a set of communicable diseases known as “Notifiable Diseases”.
The Notifiable Diseases list and the written report are attached to this correspondence. Please note: the diseases for which suspect or confirmed diagnosis require immediate reporting to the Medical Officers of Health (MOH) on-call.
A revised set of “Rules and Privileges”, as established by Council in April 2019, that will govern processes at the upcoming AGM that will be held by webinar and teleconference are now available. For more information on the AGM and a link to the Rules and Privileges click here.
Resolutions are an important way to raise issues for discussion at the Annual General Meeting and to request action by ARNNL Council. Resolutions are advisory in nature and therefore not binding on Council. Resolutions consistent with ARNNL's mandate and role may be submitted by special interest groups or individual members. Resolutions can be submitted by mail, fax or email. View ARNNL's guidelines on submission of resolutions. The deadline for submission of resolutions is May 10, 2019.
