WHY IS THIS A REQUIREMENT?
The Government of Alberta passed Bill 21: An Act to Protect Patients, which came into force April 1, 2019. The Act directs that all health profession regulators establish a patient relations program which includes training for registrants on protecting patients from sexual abuse and sexual misconduct. The College collaborated with the Alberta Federation of Regulated Health Professions to develop education modules on protecting patients from sexual abuse and sexual misconduct for all regulated health professions in Alberta.
The mandatory Protecting Patients from Sexual Abuse and Misconduct course covers expectations for the nursing profession and its relationships with patients. The knowledge and application of these expectations by registrants will help to protect patients from sexual abuse and misconduct.
