Helping physicians comply with personal health information laws
Nurses in Nova Scotia are becoming fed up with people using their cellphones to record them while they work, a growing problem that can distract health workers from their jobs and violates patients' privacy, according to the head of a nursing union.
The flow of physicians moving to Nova Scotia has slowed during a year when travel restrictions killed job fairs and on-site visits to Nova Scotia communities anxious to attract international medical graduates.
The good news is the drop is not as dramatic as might have been expected. Between April 2020 and March 2021, Nova Scotia will receive 106 physicians, 24 of whom are signed and sealed but not yet delivered. Fifty-four* of those recruits are badly needed family doctors.
While the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses in Nova Scotia are in short supply, people are quickly stepping up to help with the vaccine rollout when more shots arrive.
