The new Local Anaesthetic Module

Registrants who are certified to administer local anaesthesia (LA) must renew their certification (C) annually during the licence renewal period. Re-certification is required once every five years as part of the Quality Assurance Program (QAP) cycle.

The CDHBC Quality Assurance Committee (QAC) has determined that the most appropriate learning activity for registrants to maintain their LA certification through re-certification is completion of an online module for continued safe practice of LA.
 
The new LA Module is modelled after the Jurisprudence Education Module (JEM). It consists of five sections and is hosted on the same online platform as the JEM. Registrants will work through the three-hour module until they receive 100 per cent on each section quiz, which consists of multiple-choice questions. Registrants are given unlimited attempts to successfully complete each quiz. There is no cost to registrants to complete the LA Module.
 
Registrants are able to bookmark progress in the LA Module and log back in to complete it on another day. However, if too much time lapses between logins, a registrant’s bookmarked progress may no longer be there.
 
Registrants who complete the LA Module can claim three Continuing Competency (CC) credits for the module towards the required 75 credits within their current QAP cycle, as approved by the College’s QAC in October 2021.
