Protecting Patients from Sexual Abuse and Misconduct
Introduced in November 2018, Bill 21: An Act to Protect Patients
was introduced to improve transparency and enforce penalties for regulatory complaints relating to sexual abuse and misconduct.
As a requirement of Bill 21, regulated health professionals must complete an annual trauma-informed training course. The "Protecting Patients from Sexual Abuse and Misconduct" course was designed by the Alberta Federation of Regulated Health Professions to fulfill this requirement.
This one-hour online course is free to members, worth two CC credits and completion is required by June 20, 2020. This is a re-occurring annual requirement. CC credits will be awarded for the completion of this course once per renewal year.
The course consists of three modules:
- An introduction to Bill 21: An Act to Protect Patients
- Preventing sexual abuse and sexual misconduct
- When sexual abuse and sexual misconduct has occurred
