RN(NP)s Receive Authority to Complete Medical Certificates of Death in Saskatchewan
The SRNA would like to inform key stakeholders that Registered Nurse (Nurse Practitioners) have been given legislative authority by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health and regulatory authority through the SRNA to complete Medical Certificate of Death and registration of stillbirth. Please visit Queen’s printer to review amendments to The Vital Statistic Act and The Vital Statistics Regulations on their web site http://www.qp.gov.sk.ca/
The SRNA and RN(NP)s would like to thank key partners; Saskatchewan Ministry of Health, eHealth, Office of the Chief Coroner, Canadian Nurses Protective Society and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan for working in collaboration to amend this provincial legislation and provide education for the RN(NP)s. It is through these meaningful organizational partnerships and the work of RN(NP)s across the province that we are able to make continuous improvements in the care of Saskatchewan families.
