Question answered by freeside49
you are certainly needed here (nursing shortage) and the health authorities will help you with your immigration requirements. .... the best to work for in BC is Vancouver Coastal but that said nurses wages and working conditions are the same union province wide so not a huge difference between any of them in terms of pay or terms. Try http://www.bcnu.org/ and it will show hourly rates and such. ..
For jobs look under the "career" section of the following health regions
Vancouver Coastal health region
the worst to work for is Fraser Health http://www.fraserhealth.ca
Theres also the Provincial Health Authority which looks after Childrens, Cancer and other province wide health requirements but they too are located in vancouiver.
Being from the UK you'll probably like the climate in vancouver (warm dry summers and mild wet winters) but if you want to live in the Interior of BC that Health region is http://www.interiorhealth.ca The Interior has nice summers but gets colder and more snow in the winter than the coast does.
Suburban Vancouver (Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford) are much cheaper places to live than downtown vancouver.

Why are health authorities so concerned regarding the use of marijuana among teenagers?
Why are health authorities so concerned regarding the use of marijuana among teenagers?
Currently marijuana is decriminalised. What does this mean and how would laws change if it became legalised?
Why do you believe people are more supportive of tightening laws relating to alcohol and tobacco than they are in favour of laws relating to marijuana use?

Well im not going to explain myself because alot of people on here that are your age will agree with you. They arent, they are just as concerned with alchohol and tobaco as they are with weed. Im only 15, and regardless of what anyone wants to tell me weed makes you a fucking idiot, and is bad for your lungs, just like anything else that is not supposed to be in your lungs(you cant expect to walk into a room full of weed smoke with no oxygen and think you can live off of it, when you inhale smoke from a pipe it sure as hell doesnt feel comfortable as breathing oxygen does). It makes you an idiot because it alters your mind without being aware, because it causes mental effects over time.Oh and to mention that it is a MAJOR gateway drug. I should know because about 90 percent of the kids at my highschool do drugs, and i live with drugies, and ive DONE lots of drugs. And the reason why its illeagle is because of all of that. Yes it does cause crime, MY POINT EXACTLY, because people who smoke weed think the have to start a conflict with somebody who just Had to steal there weed, or didnt give them enough weed( in other words you only care about yourself and your weed), and yes, no reports of weed deaths because they dont keep records of if a person smoked weed, for the fact that its illeagle.
Is it wrong that nine out of ten health authorities discriminate on age and illness?
In the Telegraph it is reported that GP's conspire with Health Authorities to deny treatment for simple procedures to the elderly.
Does this abomination make a mockery of the Hippocratic Oath and Beveridges motives for the NHS?

Seeing as processed sugar and salt cause billions of dollars of health issues, if they were introduced today as new 'products', is it likely that health authorities would ban or limit them?

In Faith, Reason and The Plague written by Cipolla
Also, What did the health authorities and the clergy think was the cause of the plague?
Question answered by titacabreros
In "Faith, Reason and the Plague in Seventeenth-Century Tuscany", Carlo M. Cipolla traces the relentless progress of the plague in Tuscany, then a highly developed region of Western Europe. As fear eventually lapsed into hysteria when confronted with death and widespread illness, the plague no doubt brought abrupt changes to religion and one's faith in the Almighty. The paper shows that, consequently, the idealized selfless image of the faithful and religious suffered during and after the plague. With economic and social tensions collapsing before one's very eyes with the advent of the disease, it was not uncommon for one to ponder how could God allow such an affliction to persist. Was the plague an evil made necessary by inescapable evolution, or perhaps a tragic accident at variance with the normal advance of events? The paper explores answers to this question, and others.
Rather, the imminence of death, brought closer than every by plague, made the need for salvation more pressing. One consequence was the spread of mysticism and lay piety. Mystics believed that God lived in every individual and that His presence was felt in proportion to one's ability to suppress intrinsic material and sensual inclinations and subject one's will to that of God."
Have a pleasant day.
What are the exact duties of an Infection Control Nurse in a hospital?
Usually they are involved in the preventive measures to prevent Nosocomial infections. However, their are lots of infective diseases (like Typhoid, Brucellosis, Mumps, Measles etc, which have to be notified to the Public Health Authorities. Has the infection control nurse any role in the notification process? Is it her duty to collect the necessary information, fill up all the forms and send it to the health authorities?
Face the truth
Question answered by Remo
Thanks for asking,
Before, I come to the point, I need to tell you that, prevention of infection is everyone buisiness in the health care field and everyone must aware, what are the various preventive measures that exist .
However, each hospital has an Infection control Team, which has got a consultant microbiologist, lead infection control nurse, Infection control nurses and the Infection control link nurses.
Each personnel in the team has got designated job description, however their aim is common. The infection control nurse plays a pivotal role for bringing the services together that are needed for preventing infection and reducing infection rate.
The role of an infection control nurse would be,
*He/she makes regular visit to the particular clinical area to make sure that the patients with particular infection receives an appropriate treatment in regard to the isolation precaution, and the type of treatment that the patient has to receive.
*He/she make sure that, the staff are educated and updated with the protocols in relation to the infection control. She may advise and supervise the work of staff. She/ he also arranges special teaching session to the staff and even for specific group of patients pertaining to the infection control and prevention
*He/she collects data of patients with infections that require isolation precaution and use of specific antibiotics.eg; MRSA, C.diff etc;
*He/ she also conducts clinical audit to make sure that, the high standard of care in place in relation to the infection control and prevention.
*He/ she updates his/ her knowledge by participating in the clinical governance meeting.
*He/she cascade the updated information to the infection control link nurses at the local area .
*He/she may share her or his concern or worries to the Infection control lead nurse or the consultant microbilogist in order to get an idea and for a possible solution.
In the hospital situation, any outbreak of infection is normally informed by the Head of the microbiology or virology department. The information will then be cascaded to the local unit/ward through the infection control nurses and infection control link nurses.
Although, collecting information and doing paper works are the part of the role of the Infection control nurses, it is not common for them, to notify about any outbreak of infection to the national health authorities. It is most commonly done by the consultant microbiologist of the team or by the head of the microbiology/virology of the particular hospital.
However, this practise varies from hospital to hospital.

Is the drinking water in Surrey, England dosed with any chemicals compared to other water supplies in UK?
Are any additives added to drinking water suppies in different areas, by instruction of the 'Health Authority body' to water firms?
If so, why? Would Surrey be a safer drinking water area compared to other regions of the UK?
Could any of the added chemicals/metals effect the thinking patterns of certain individual humans? Change cognitive thinking? Cause depression? Limit a person's thinking range? Their Socratical questioning abilities? Etc...
Thanks in advance!

The water in Surrey is safer simply because it does not contain Fluoride.
