The Student Practice Team would like to inform students and faculty instructors about updates to MEDITECH training requirements

Background:

  • Between April 24, 2018 and May 9, 2018, MEDITECH Patient Care System 2 (PCS2) and Emergency Department Manager (EDM) will Go-Live in Maternity-Postpartum, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Pediatrics, and Emergency Department at Abbotsford Regional Hospital (ARH).

  • To facilitate staff training, student placements will be limited to only final preceptorships and Specialty Nursing placements during the Go-Live period.After May 9, 2018, all 1:1 student placements (preceptorship, field guide type) and instructor led-group student placements can be accommodated again across ARH. Students and faculty instructors placed at ARH will require the following electronic documentation system training according to their discipline and unit:

Why is this important?

Documentation in these MEDITECH applications using the correct tools and resources can optimize students’ and faculty instructors’ placement experiences. This is also important for ensuring that our patients continue to receive quality health care.

How will these impact students and faculty instructors?

All students and faculty instructors must complete the training requirements outlined above a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the placement start date to receive “write" access to the system. Students and faculty instructors can register for these courses via the LearningHub.
