How to Find a Registered PSW
Although registration with the Health and Personal Support Workers Oversight Authority (HSCPOA) is not mandatory for Personal Support Workers (PSWs); however, those who are registered have shown their ability to meet the entry-to-practice requirements set by HSCPOA. In addition, they’ve pledged to practice in accordance with the Code of Ethics, Professional Ethical Standards for PSWs and Practice Guidelines. Registrants have the privilege to use the PSW Visual Mark.
The Public Register can be accessed by employers, other health care practitioners, and the public to check a PSW’s registration status, current business location and whether they are in good standing with HSCPOA.
NOTE: This service will be available following initial registration of PSWs with HSCPOA.
