Providing Culturally Safe Health Care for Indigenous Patients in Newfoundland and Labrador

It is our hope that those of you who complete this course will find it to be beneficial in improving your knowledge and know-how about engaging in culturally safe practice with Indigenous patients, their families, and their communities.

Blood Transfusion: Intravenous Immune Globulin (IVIg)

Intravenous immune globulin (IVIG) is a blood product manufactured from large pools of human plasma. While IVIG is generally prescribed by a specialist, patients are often maintained and followed-up by a family physician.

This module will focus on the processes for ordering IVIG and monitoring for adverse events.

Blood Transfusion: Adverse Transfusion Reactions (ATRs)

An adverse transfusion reaction (ATR) is an undesirable and unintended physiological response during or after the administration of blood components or plasma derived blood products. This module will focus on identifying ATRs and the actions required when an ATR is occurring.

Writing Prescriptions in NL

Prescribing medications is an important part of a physician’s medical practice. It encompasses more than physically writing a prescription. This course will assist health professionals in implementing best practices to minimize the factors that contribute to prescribing errors.
