Reporting a child in need of protection—what you need to know

The following is a fictitious story, which serves to illustrate the importance of early detection and action by health-care providers when child abuse is suspected. This story was provided to the College by Dr. Jean Hlady, FRCPC, Clinical Professor, Department of Pediatrics, UBC and Ms. Barbara Willson, RN, Nursing Practice Consultant, College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia.

New or updated professional standards and guidelines

The College develops Professional Standards and Guidelines to assist physicians in meeting high standards of medical practice and conduct. The topics addressed focus on specific issues that are relevant to the practice of medicine. Physicians are encouraged to become familiar with the College's Professional Standards and Guidelines. The Professional Standards and Guidelines are reviewed regularly and may be updated over time.


The College Connector is sent to every current registrant of the College. Decisions of the College on matters of standards and guidelines are contained in this publication. The College therefore assumes that each registrant is aware of these matters. Questions or comments about this publication should be directed to communications@cpsbc.ca.
