Why is this important?

Fraser Health considers the patient experience in all parts of the health system. This includes the development and revision of policies, Clinical Decision Support Tools, forms, and Pre-Printed Orders. Our goal is to provide quality care that is sensitive and responsive to patient needs, preferences, and beliefs.

How will this impact students and faculty instructors? 

Students and faculty instructors who are completing student placements in Fraser Health are expected to apply any necessary changes in their practice to ensure that patients, clients, and residents continue to receive safe and quality care. Students and faculty instructors can only access this CDST via FH Pulse when they are on a Fraser Health computer on a Fraser Health site.


Please contact the Student Practice Team.
