Close legal loopholes that exclude social workers from being part of the healthcare system.

Answer:

Social workers in the healthcare sector are also an important part of providing a continuum of care in a public healthcare system. While social workers in healthcare are regulated in BC, others have a patchwork system of regulation under the Social Workers Act that exempts workers caring for some of our most vulnerable people. Work needs to be done to close loopholes in legislation that have delayed the regulation of social workers as part of the broader health professions umbrella.
