It is an asset in the health profession to have staff trained to be medical office chaperones. Chaperones are instrumental in supporting the emotional comfort and reassurance of their patients, as well as providing assistance for the examining physician. MacEwan University, in association with The College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta, is pleased to offer the Medical Office Chaperone course for staff working in physician offices. In this interactive course, you will learn from video dramatizations, handouts, open dialogue and hands-on activities to gain the knowledge and tools that you can apply immediately to your work environment.

This course is for Medical Office Assistants, LPNs, RNs and PCAs. It is designed to help you understand your role and responsibilities as a chaperone, learn about what constitutes a proper and improper intimate examination, understand the rights of the patient, provide chaperone support and assistance to the patients and physicians, and correctly document procedures and processes observed.
