New Self-Study Micro-Module: Privacy Legislation

Complete this informative micro-module in less than one hour!

The purpose of regulation is to ensure that regulated healthcare providers, such as Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), practice in a safe, competent, and ethical manner.

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) have a professional and ethical responsibility to practice within the relevant laws governing privacy and confidentiality of patient information. This means all LPNs have the duty to safeguard a patient’s personal and health information as well as respect a patient’s right to privacy. LPNs are ultimately responsible for determining and understanding which piece of privacy legislation helps fulfill this commitment.

The CLPNA’s new online micro module Privacy Legislation assists LPNs to understand various provincial and federal privacy legislation and how it impacts LPN nursing practice.

The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta asks all Licensed Practical Nurses to take advantage of this learning resource. Learning modules are designed to help you understand practice standards and other related documents. They are convenient and allow you to learn at your own pace at any time of day.
