Ordering a lab test
Outpatient Laboratory tests may only be ordered by a physician, midwife, nurse practitioner, certified rural RN or dentist in accordance with the Clinical Practice Guidelines and Protocols developed by the BC Medical Association and the Ministry of Health. Requests for laboratory testing from Naturopaths are not accepted by IH labs at this time.
