You know about doctors and nurses, but do you know about the >70 other specialized health care professionals who are part of the health care team? Shortages of these professionals were severe pre-pandemic & now conditions are unsustainable. Learn more: hsabc.org/EndTheShortages

It's National Nursing Week, and Gloria Reuben (from TV's ER) is joining in the many expressions of gratitude and appreciation for nurses -- especially BC's Registered Psychiatric Nurses who continue to #AnswerTheCall #NationalNursingWeek

We’re all excited for our first in-person convention since 2019! #hsabc2022

We're also proud to work together with @bcgeu @bctf @CUPEBC @HospEmpUnion to achieve fair contracts for public sector workers who have served BCers through COVID & the opioid and climate catastrophes. HSA members can find bargaining updates at hsabc.org/bargaining
Bargaining between BCGEU and #bcpoli government employer has hit impasse. The BCGEU is further along in bargaining than the BCTF. We fully support their efforts to get a fair deal to ensure public sector workers don't fall behind. #BCed teachers can read updates on our website.

Almost 400K workers across the public sector who provide the services we all depend on will be at the bargaining table this year. They deserve a fair deal that protects their wages against inflation & supports strong public services we need to build a stronger BC. #bcpoli

"We will all run ourselves into the ground for the sake of our patients, and our whole system has banked on our willingness to do so. We’ve done that. We’re there. We’re buried. We can no longer compensate without adequate resources."

We have been talking to gov't about the serious shortages of health science professionals and are happy to see these 20 fast-track RT training seats at TRU #RTWeek2021 Now we hope to see additional training seats for the many other health science professions with shortages.
Its Respiratory Therapy Week! Respiratory therapists play an important role in our team-based health system & this is why we are funding the addition of 20 new seats to the RT Diploma program @thompsonriversu: news.gov.bc.ca/25619 @Interior_Health @AnneKangMLA #RTWeek2021

On behalf of @hsabc members, I & health professionals across Canada, we spoke about why #10days of #PaidSickDays is vital in protecting our health care system & economy for the health of all Cdns. We must learn the lessons of the Pandemic. Thanks to @DecentWorkHlth

Good 🧵 on the importance of Paid Sick Leave:
Today, health workers across Canada are calling on PM @JustinTrudeau to keep his promise of legislating 10 #PaidSickDays within 100 days of re-election. A month after the election, his government has 70 days to deliver on this commitment. More from our press conference👇👇👇
