Health science professionals invited to register for the Emergency Health Provider Registry as wildfires put pressure on health care delivery

With British Columbia experiencing the third most destructive wildfire season on record, while still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the opioid crisis, the demand on all members of the health care team continues to be unrelenting.
 
And health care professionals are being asked to do a bit more: support the health care team in the areas most hard hit by wildfires by registering with the Emergency Health Provider Registry.
 
The Emergency Health Provider Registry has been open over the past number of months to support the province’s COVID-19 response, and it is now also being used to support the wildfire response. It is open for sign-up by health science professionals and other health care workers, including nurses, doctors, and other health sector staff.
 
The centralized registry helps connect the health authorities that are managing local emergencies with additional health care professionals who are willing to be deployed throughout the province.
