Professional Practice in Care Giving

14 weeks Course

Overview

This course aims to deepen our knowledge of professional practice with the goal of increasing our competence and skills as caregivers. The course will explore the Canadian healthcare system, consent and capacity, rights and ethics as well as self care concepts and the uniqueness in our role as a caregiver. The course will also build upon previously introduced concepts of confidentiality, boundaries and caregiver burnout.

Most college level courses require textbooks; textbooks are not included in the course fees. It is the student’s responsibility to purchase any required textbooks.

Textbooks are available at the Campus Shop for in class, Contact North, and iLearn/D2L courses. The Campus Shop does not carry most OntarioLearn textbooks. OntarioLearn textbooks can be purchased at www.textnet.ca.
