Health Canada Developing Healthy Workplace Guidelines for Nurses

June 26, 2002
Canadian Minister of Health Anne McLellan says that Health Canada will provide $250,000 for the development of Healthy Workplace Guidelines for Canadian nurses.

Under the leadership of Health Canada's Office of Nursing Policy and in partnership with leading nursing and health care organizations, this initiative will translate existing research and experience into guidelines that can be used by nurses, employers, unions, governments and others to improve the working conditions of Canadian nurses.

"Nurses are an essential part of our health system as they have a direct impact on the health of patients," said McLellan. "Clearly, all Canadians will benefit from guidelines that will improve the working conditions of nurses."

Funding for the Healthy Workplace Guidelines was provided for in the December 2001 budget and is built into the existing fiscal framework.
