“Are You Vulnerable?” – Sexual Violence in the Clinical Setting, a PCL Educational Solution

Health professionals are familiar with clinician – patient professionalism boundaries and behaviours. How do these codes of conduct apply to teachers in healthcare professional education? How can teachers model and teach professionalism to the learner, while ensuring that the teaching approach is appropriate?  How can teachers protect themselves, and their learners from harm? The Waterloo Regional Campus of McMaster University and the School of Pharmacy at the University of Waterloo have created and produced 6 modules on “professionalism in clinical learning”. They aim to familiarize HPE teachers with important concepts, recognize traps and pitfalls, and equip them with skills and strategies to enhance professional conduct in the clinical learning environment. In this live workshop, we review in detail module 6, “Sexual Violence: Identification and Prevention”.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the many forms of sexual violence and recognize its prevalence in healthcare settings
  • Identify instances of sexual violence in real-life scenarios and choose approrpriate responses
  • Recognize on-campus and off-campus resources available to individuals affected by sexual violence
  • Engage more effectively with learners in other healthcare programs on the subject of sexual violenc
