Health Care Aide Role and Responsibility

HCA-1130 (3.00 credits)

During this course, you will focus on the role and responsibilities of a health care aide working in a variety of employment settings. The focus on this course is to share information that will result in safe, ethical, and respectful care based on the needs of the client. Care that meets these standards is known as person-centred care. To meet the goal of person-centred care, the health care aide must be familiar with the provincial legislation that guides safe, ethical, and personalized care. In addition, knowledge of how to work as part of the health-care team is essential, as is the ability to follow your employer's policy and procedures and your job description. The HCA is responsible for identifying, managing, and preventing potential environmental hazards in facilities and community-based settings and focusing on the client's safety as well as your own safety in different settings. Not available for supplemental.
