Ontario Creating Registry For Personal Support Workers – 19 May 2011

“McGuinty Government Working With PSWs To Deliver Quality Health Care

News
Ontario is creating a registry of personal support workers (PSWs) that will better recognize the work they do for Ontarians, while helping to better meet the needs of the people they care for.

PSWs will have the opportunity to sign up with the registry and provide key information such as: contact information, current employment, educational background and years of experience.
Employers and the public could use the registry to verify this important information, and employers would be better informed to meet patient needs. 

PSWs provide care to seniors, people with disabilities and those with complex health needs. This registry will enable the government to work in partnership with PSWs to better meet the health needs of these vulnerable groups, leading to improved health outcomes.    

The registry will be up and running no later than the summer of 2012.”
