Starting April 1, Bill 21 introduces new requirements that apply to all regulated health professionals in Alberta. The revisions to the Health Professions Act (HPA) define ‘sexual abuse’ and ‘sexual misconduct’ and establish obligations on health professionals and regulatory colleges.
A new webinar from the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta aims to inform all LPNs about their Bill 21 responsibilities, and about changes to the CLPNA’s complaints processes and public information to better protect the public from sexual misconduct and abuse. These changes include increased transparency, mandatory sanctions, a patient-relations program, and more.
This webinar will:
- Introduce LPNs to Bill 21
- Inform LPNs about mandatory reporting
- Explain changes to CLPNA processes
- Expand on new Standards of Practice/Education requirements related to Bill 21
The webinar includes a LIVE Q&A with CLPNA representatives.
This webinar is FREE! No registration fee to attend. This webinar is intended to be an education tool that will inspire you to delve into this topic with new interest.
