Prepare for Your Practicum

 
The following steps are required prior to a  placement at PHSA. 

1Read the PHSA policies

Several policies are in effect at PHSA and its agencies:

2Complete the privacy module on Learning Hub

Complete the PHSA Student Practice Education: Privacy and Confidentiality module (30 minutes).

You must review the module, complete the quiz, and 'Accept' the PHSA Confidentiality Covenant to successfully complete the module. This will be PHSA's record of your agreement. 

3

Complete the Cerner modules on Learning Hub (required for access to Clinical Information Systems)


Only, if you are attending a clinical placement at BC Children's Hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children, BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre, or Child & Youth Mental Health (Oak Street Campus), you must complete the Cerner training and agreement, at least one week prior to placement start, but no more than four weeks in advance, to receive access to the Cerner system upon arrival. 

Instructions:  Select your discipline below to see required training, depending on practicum location (or see Table of Required Student eLearning for PowerChart Access, to the right).  On the Learning Hub, locate your required courses by using the 'find a course' button, or use the links provided below and in table.   The courses are batched into a curriculum based on role and location.  As you complete courses, they will be indicated as 'complete' in all curricula.

Time to complete the e-learning is 2 - 6 hours depending on number of courses required for the profession and setting.   The Learning Hub maintains a "Learning History" and it is not necessary to repeat courses unless you need to refresh your knowledge and skills.

Once you have completed training, you will receive instructions via your school email address:

  • first, on how to activate your network account
  • second, on how to access your Cerner PowerChart account. 
To ensure timely access to electronic systems, complete training at least one week in advance of placement start, but no more than four weeks in advance.
