Pursuant to the Health Professions Act (HPA), all Health Profession Colleges are required to develop a† Patient Relations Program which includes mandatory training for Registrants on protecting patients from sexual abuse and sexual misconduct.
The Alberta Federation of Regulated Health Professionals has developed online training for regulated health professionals on preventing and addressing sexual abuse and sexual misconduct towards patients.
Upon successful completion of the training and quiz, a certificate is provided. Registrants must provide the certificate in order to complete their renewal application on March 31, 2022 and retain it for a† period of five years.
**Please note that the training program does not save your progress, so you must print your certificate upon completion. You will be asked to start over if you return at a later time. The print dialogue at the end of the course also requires that you allow a pop-up in order to proceed. Use of Google Chrome web browser on a† computer/laptop connected to a printer is recommended.
