Prior to your first day of placement/observership, you must read the following policy documents and submit the Registration Form to Katherine Brown, Academic Coordinator:

  • Step One - review policies and take quizzes
  • Step Two - complete registration form
  • Step Three - complete e-Module EMR training
  • Step Four - obtain an influenza vaccination if you have not already had one for the season. 

STEP ONE: Review policy documents and take quizzes

Please note that Bridgepoint does not require you to undertake duplicate training.  If you have completed mandatory training in Privacy, Workplace Violence, Infection Control, sharps procedures, WHMIS, Hand Hygiene or Accessible Customer Service at a health system institution within the last 12 months you do not need to take the quizzes below.  Everyone must review the Code Red and Code Green procedures and quiz as they are unique to Bridgepoint.  You will be asked to note on your Registration Form where and when you did your training.

A. Bridgepoint Health Privacy Policy and a quiz online

B. Bridgepoint Code of Ethics

C. Hand Hygiene quiz on line

D. Code Red and Code Green and a quiz in the Registration form

E. Violence in the Workplace Prevention and Management quiz online

F. Workplace Hazardous Materials Information Sheets quiz online

G. Accessible Customer Service quiz online 

H. Health and Safety Awareness quiz online

Bridgepoint thanks the Toronto Academic Health Science Network for access to the quizzes on privacy, violence in the workplace, hand hygiene and WHMIS.

Please note that we have more training information and non-mandatory quizzes in the 'Resources' section.

STEP THREE: Review electronic documentation 

Bridgepoint Active Healthcare has almost full electronic documentation of patients' medical records. All of our inpatient units use electronic documentation, and all students/Residents going to these units require training that will be provided early during the placement.

Students who will be charting electronically or viewing the EMR (Electronic Medical Record) must review and be familiar with the following e-learning module prior to their training.


Students should note that even the basic EMR training is comprehensive and demanding.  You must ensure you are fully familiar with the module above prior to arrival.  Nursing students can generally expect to spend around four hours in EMR training, other professions between one and two hours.

Trainees at all levels may download the comprehensive EMR instructions from the Resources pages of the website. 

STEP FOUR: Obtain influenza vaccination for the current influenza season

See the new Vaccinate or Mask policy FAQ here and look at the summary here.  The flu vaccine can take up to two weeks to reach full potency and, if we are in a period of 'vaccinate or mask' (usually from January to the end of the flu season in March/April) you will need to wear a mask for two weeks after your vaccination.  We encourage all students to obtain the vaccination as soon as it is available.
