CARNA provides confidential consultation to registered nurses, nurse practitioners, health care professionals and the public who seek assistance about issues that affect the delivery of safe, competent, and ethical nursing care.
Personal information and practice consultation information is only disclosed with consent of the individual, or if required by law. Only aggregate and non-identifiable data is reported for CARNA internal use, and a summary report of the review of practice consultations is posted externally to the CARNA website.
As regulated health professionals, the policy and practice consultants must meet the same professional practice expectations outlined in the Health Professions Act, CARNA Practice Standards for Regulated Members and the Canadian Nurses Association Code of Ethics for Registered Nurses as all regulated members of CARNA.
CARNA's policy and practice consultants review their consultations annually to identify emerging trends and issues for nursing and health care. Only aggregate and non-identifiable data is reported.
