Appropriate use of PPE continues to be central to our fight against COVID-19, on the frontlines.
Alberta Health Services’ Provincial PPE Safety Coach Program ensures all AHS frontline staff andy physicians feel supported in selecting and donning and doffing the PPE that will protect them, as per the point of care risk assessment completed every patient, every time.
AHS site leadership and unit management work with staff and physicians to identify coaches.
If you have been identified by your leader, please complete the below five step training program. Training is delivered virtually and anticipated to take two hours.
This is a voluntary program, which adopts a peer-to-peer approach. PPE Safety Coaches will be available and accessible on each shift, as experts supporting frontline staff using a friendly, informal and helpful approach. Their role will not be to audit, but to support and work together with staff and physicians. See FAQ for more info on the Provincial PPE Safety Coach Program.
