ACP online learning
Jurisprudence learning module
The jurisprudence learning module is used to prepare pharmacists and pharmacy technicians for ACP's Ethics & Jurisprudence Exam.
The module can be completed in any order. Once the module has been completed, there will be an orange banner at the top of the screen saying “Click here to print your certificate”. This indicates that the module is complete. Please print the certificate for your records and to submit it to ACP.
If I have completed the module, do I need to complete the two Sexual Abuse and Sexual Misconduct courses as well?
The Sexual Abuse and Sexual Misconduct courses are included in the module, so you don’t need to complete these courses separately.
- Ensure you are using a laptop or desktop to access the website, not a tablet or mobile device.
- ACP recommends using Google Chrome as your browser.
- Check your pop-up blocker and make sure it is disabled.
- Try using incognito browser with the pop-ups disabled, or private browsing mode.
- Disable any browser add-ons.
This can be caused by interruptions in your internet connection. Please check your network connection. If you continue going through the module after receiving this message, your progress may not be saved.
At times, the “Next” button may be missing. This means that in order to advance to the next slide, you will need to complete an activity on that slide. This may include clicking a “Submit” button or ticking a checkbox before being able to advance to the next slide.
I have completed a slide but there is still a lock icon beside the slide. Why is the lock still there?
If the slide in question has an activity on it, it will continue to show the lock icon even if you have completed the activity. A lock icon does not necessarily mean you haven’t completed a slide. As long you have completed the activity on that slide, you can continue through the module.
If these tips did not answer your question or resolve your problem with the module, please email email@example.com and someone will respond to your email within 15 business days to provide assistance.
NOTE: This module is not the same as the prescribed Jurisprudence Self-Assessment available in the CCP portal.
Mandatory education on protecting patients from sexual abuse and sexual misconduct
To be fully compliant with Bill 21—An Act to Protect Patients—all regulated members* have completed two online courses on measures for preventing and addressing sexual abuse of and sexual misconduct towards patients.
1. AFRHP course: Protecting Patients from Sexual Abuse and Misconduct
The first course—Protecting Patients from Sexual Abuse and Misconduct—is offered by the Alberta Federation of Regulated Health Professions (AFRHP). The three-module course will familiarize learners with Bill 21 legislation including key definitions, mandatory reporting requirements, and consequences of sexual abuse and sexual misconduct. It will also create awareness for regulated members about how to recognize and prevent sexual abuse and sexual misconduct.
2. ACP course—Standards of Practice: Sexual abuse and sexual misconduct
The ACP course—Standards of Practice: Sexual abuse and sexual misconduct—will familiarize learners with ACP’s standards, which focus on key definitions, mitigating risk, relationships between regulated members and patients, and expectations of the college and regulated members.
