Resources

Basic Pyxis training sessions

Note: Class content is identical at both Surrey Memorial Hospital and Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

For the instructor:

  • Once they are trained they do not need to repeat training.
  • We need a site specific access request form every different session as access is approved for each clinical/per site. Then we reactivate access.
  • Passwords expire after 90 days, so they may also need a password reset.

For Royal Columbian Hospital, Chilliwack General Hospital and Fraser Canyon Hospital 

Nursing and respiratory therapy programs will be using the Omnicell automated medication dispensing cabinets.  

Complete and forward the appropriate Omnicell user access request form, if medication access is required for students or educators assigned to this site

Omnicell Basic Training Sessions

See Basic Omnicell Training Registration course schedule. Note: If there are no registrants four days before the scheduled class, it will be cancelled.

Note: Future implementations of automated medication dispensing cabinets will use Omnicell.

For all student access questions, contact:

PIXALERE (for Home Health students providing wound care) 

Educational institution instructors/faculty with students placed in Home Health settings where students will be required to document wound care in Pixalere as part of their leaning outcomes are required to attend training provided by a health authority in B.C. and then train their students. Pixalere is a program used across B.C. health authorities to document wounds care. Preceptorship students accepted to Fraser Health from institutions outside of the Lower Mainland have responsibility to ensure the student is prepared for the clinical setting prior to their start date (review HSPnet destination profiles). Group students placed in Fraser Health should receive the training from their instructors.

Pixalere accounts for students should be requested through student.placement@fraserhealth.ca for the period of their clinical placement.
