Physician’s resource

Issue: BCMJ, Vol. 52, No. 7, September 2010, page(s) 356 WorkSafeBC

A handy list of all medical advisors and nurse advisors across the province. Cut it out and post it on the nearest wall or bulletin board.

WorkSafeBC medical advisors (MAs) and nurse advisors (NAs) are a valuable resource for physicians with injured worker patients. 

MAs and NAs review clinical information relevant to WorkSafeBC claims, and while MAs occasionally examine injured workers, they do not replace the primary treating physician.

The following is a directory of MAs and NAs throughout the province. The contact information is for physicians only—please do not provide these names or numbers to anyone else. Injured worker patients with questions regarding a WorkSafeBC claim should contact their case managers.

Physicians with questions regarding an injured worker patient should contact an MA in the nearest WorkSafeBC office. If your question could be better answered by one of our industry-specific experts, the MA will give you the appropriate name and contact information.

Physicians can also contact all medical advisors and nurse advisors by calling toll free 888 967-5377 from anywhere in BC or Alberta, then using the last four numbers of the individual’s phone number as the extension.
