Many Canadians are juggling the demands of full or part-time employment with the need to provide regular informal care to family and friends. Caregiving can affect the well-being of employee caregivers, and lead to increased costs for their employers by impacting job performance, absenteeism and productivity. Following Budget 2014, the Government of Canada launched the Canadian Employers for Caregivers Plan (CECP) to explore ways to help employee caregivers participate as fully as possible in the workforce.

First Aid
Notes
Available free on the Internet
First aid is the provision of immediate care to a victim with an injury of illness, usually effected by a lay person, and performed within a limited skill range. First aid is normally performed until the injury or illness is satisfactorily dealt with (such as in the case of small cuts, minor bruises, and blisters) or until the next level of care, such as an ambulance or doctor, arrives. This book is a Canadian version of the original at Wikibooks. All references to protocols which do not comply with resuscitation standards in Canada have been removed. [from BCcampus OpenEd website]

Medicines By Design aims to explain how scientists unravel the many different ways medicines work in the body and how this information guides the hunt for drugs of the future. Pharmacology is a broad discipline encompassing every aspect of the study of drugs, including their discovery and development and the testing of their action in the body. Much of the most promising pharmacological research going on at universities across the country is sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Working at the crossroads of chemistry, genetics, cell biology, physiology, and engineering, pharmacologists are fighting disease in the laboratory and at the bedside. [from BCcampus OpenEd website]

Sociology
Notes
Emphasizes the relevance of research methods for the everyday lives of its readers, undergraduate students. Each chapter describes how research methodology is useful for students in the multiple roles they fill: (1) as consumers of popular and public information, (2) as citizens in a society where findings from social research shape laws, policies, and public life, and (3) as current and future employees. Connections to these roles are made throughout and directly within the main text of the book. Principles of Sociological Inquiry: Qualitative and Quantitative Methods also provides balanced coverage of qualitative and quantitative approaches by integrating a variety of examples from recent and classic sociological research. The text challenges students to debate and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of both approaches. [from BCcampus website]

This examination of privacy breach management within B.C.’s health authorities is the second project conducted under the Audit and Compliance Program of the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (“OIPC”). The first was an Examination of BC Government's Privacy Breach Management1 (released January 2015). The OIPC chose health authorities for examination because they collect the most sensitive personal information from British Columbians. Therefore, citizens expect that thorough precautions will be taken to safeguard this information from unauthorized access to or collection, use, disclosure or disposal of personal information.
