The Standards of Practice for Opticians in Alberta have been updated, with useful guidelines to help explain each standard. A great way to improve your knowledge about the Standards of Practice is to take our Standards of Practice courses to help you think critically about what each standard means in your daily practice.

The Standards of Practice Knowledge Assessment course discusses scenarios about the standards that may come up, based on practice advice questions and inquiries we have had in the office. The Standards of Practice Knowledge Assessment asks you to read through the Standards and answer a series of questions. After you input your answer, you can click “Check answer” to have a more detailed explanation of why the question would be answered that way. 

For Standard 8: Patient Boundaries (Previously Standard 11) we have another in depth course that offers several scenarios for each of the standards to ensure you have a full understanding of sexual abuse and misconduct and other boundary violations.
