MyLearningLink is the web-based portal AHS has created for a wide variety of learning opportunities for both employees and medical staff. In addition to instructor led courses, there are self-directed online courses which are available to take at any time.
Registration for all courses is through MyLearningLink. To log into the MyLearningLink portal from outside the AHS network, go to MyLearningLink and log in using the same username and password you would use if you were logging on to an AHS computer.
If you experience log in difficulties, please contact MLLSupport at email@example.com
All AHS staff, physicians, students, volunteers and contracted affiliates are required to complete mandatory privacy awareness training prior to commencing duties, and subsequently every three years afterwards.
Medical Staff can complete the required learning, titled Required Organizational Learning (ROL) - InfoCare - On Our Best Behaviours, by logging into the My Learning Link account and registering for the course. For renewals, users need to ensure that they re-register for the course rather than just reviewing the information previously completed.
To find the courses - log into MyLearningLink. On the left-hand side of the screen click on "courses and registration". You can then search for the required course by entering "On Our Best Behavior".
Once the course is completed it should appear in the "Completed" tab under "Learning Home".
If you experience difficulties, please contact MyLearningLink help at firstname.lastname@example.org.

AHS has commissioned a report which reviews national and international leadership development programs for physicians. The reviews are based on evidence and information obtained from peer-reviewed literature; grey literature and online sources; and 53 conversations with leaders in healthcare from Canada, US, Australia and Europe.
Based on these findings, a list of considerations was created for AHS and other health organizations to consider when developing a physician leadership program. The findings are integrated into a change management and maintenance framework to provide a useful and grounded tool for physician leadership development strategies. Read the full report Physician Leadership Development Report.
AHS physicians also have access to leadership development opportunities available to AHS employees.
Leadership training is an important aspect of the Canadian Health Care system. Courses offered by the Canadian Medical Association’s (CMA) Physician Leadership Institute (PLI) can help you become a more effective Medical Leader. AHS has partnered with PLI to offer our Medical Staff specially designed leadership development opportunities.
For more information regarding an upcoming PLI course, contact MDCultureShift@ahs.ca.
In addition to PLI courses, the CMA offers free and accredited self-study learning available to all physicians through Physician Fundamentals.
In addition to leadership professional development, there are also a variety of Continuing Medical Education (CME) opportunities available to all Practitioners in Alberta.
Accreditation, conducted by Accreditation Canada expert peer reviewers, is a process we use to prove and improve our standards of care. Physician input is critical to the success of this continuous cycle of assessment.
The AHS physician leader for Accreditation is Dr. Brent Friesen. If you would like to be discuss the accreditation process, contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or 403-943-1279.

Knowing a patient's complete medication list is critical to providing safe care. Medication Reconciliation (MedRec) is a structured process in which healthcare providers work together with patients, clients, families and care providers to ensure accurate and complete medication information is communicated consistently. This ensures that medications being added, changed or discontinued are carefully assessed and decisions are documented.
For more information, refer to MedRec Info for Physicians.
A video has been developed which provides step by step instructions to complete the MedRec process within Calgary's urban hospitals. View MedRec process video.
