Licensed Practical Nurses are educated to maintain professional boundaries and treat their patients with respect and professionalism. However, there may be a power imbalance between an LPN and their patient that leads to unprofessional behaviour.
To protect patients, Alberta’s legislation provides health professionals with clear definitions of behaviours that constitute sexual misconduct or sexual abuse.
The self-study module, Protecting Patients from Sexual Abuse and Sexual Misconduct, is designed to provide LPNs with an understanding of this legislation and related Standards of Practice and Guideline on Boundary Violations from the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA).
Self-Study Module: Protecting Patients from Sexual Misconduct
This free and interactive online learning module is suitable to assist LPNs in meeting the Learning Plan goals of the CLPNA’s Continuing Competence Program.
A printable Certificate of Completion is available upon passing the module’s Final Exam.
