Recent amendments to the Health Professions Act (HPA) introduced by Bill 46 have led to the College making a number of changes to our operations. While we are no longer permitted to provide member-centric services like the annual conference and branch events, the College is committed to providing new regulatory education opportunities for our members to enhance their understanding of how health regulation ties into their everyday practice.
The College has already hosted two virtual Regulatory Education Symposiums and we plan to continue hosting these events twice a year. Topics for symposium presentations are mapped to the Standards of Practice and other regulatory documents to ensure our compliance with Bill 46 while making a meaningful contribution to the continuing education of our members. For more information, please see the Regulatory Education Symposium page.
The College is also collaborating with the Alberta College of Combined Laboratory and X-Ray Technologists (ACCLXT), the College and Association of Respiratory Therapists of Alberta (CARTA) and the College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Alberta (CMLTA) to create a series of learning modules that cover the following topics:
- Professional communication
- Professional boundaries
- Patient consent
- Professionalism and social media
The first two modules are now available and we plan to release the next two this summer. Please see the Learning Modules page to learn more and access the available modules.
