Computer Training

Starting November 2019, PHC will move from its current paper-based charting system (Sunrise Clinical Manager, SCM) to a new electronic health record system, CST Cerner.

This transformation will take place in waves, beginning with SPH, MSJ and HFH and continuing to other PHC sites and clinics over the following 9-12 months. The planned go-live dates are:

  • Wave 1 – November 16, 2019 (SPH Acute, MSJ Acute, some SPH outpatient clinics, HFH)
  • Waves 2 and 3 – tentatively Fall 2020

 

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR STUDENTS

Students required to use CST Cerner during their clinical training will be eligible for CST training and access. Training will consist of a series of online modules (delivered through the LearningHub) and classroom session(s). Some disciplines will only require online modules.

Training will be organized by the CST Learning Team, who will contact School Placement Coordinators (or on-site coordinators) to schedule students into their training session. For more information, refer to the CST Information for Students webpage (http://cstproject.ca/training-support/information-students).

Students should download the “CST Training Checklist for Students (Non-Providers)” to review the requirements for classroom training. The Checklist can be found on the above CST Information for Students site.

If a student has already taken the training for their role in the past, in most instances they will not need to re-take the training. However, there may be individual modules specific to the destination unit. CST Learning will inform you of any additional modules or sessions that are needed.

 

If You Are Already On-site During A Wave Go-live …

Depending on the go-live date and the unit you are placed at, you may need to learn two patient care systems. Please check with your School Placement Coordinator if you are unsure.

For SCM training, follow the steps below for your discipline (under Information for Students Going to a Non-Cerner Site).

For CST training, the CST Learning Team will use HSPnet data to identify on-site students who require CST training. If you have not been contacted about your CST training by 2 weeks before go-live, please contact the CST Learning Team at learn@cstproject.ca.

 

If You Will be Starting Your Clinical Education at a Site Already Using CST Cerner …

Training will be organized by the CST Learning Team.

  • HSPnet will be used to identify students who require training.
  • The CST Learning Team will contact the student’s Placement Coordinator or on-site Coordinator to schedule the student into a CST training session. This is expected to start about 3-4 weeks prior to their start date.
  • A “Student CST Checklist” will be provided to help the student prepare for their CST training session.
  • After attending the classroom session, CST access will be granted for the duration of the student’s placement.

Further information of this process can be found on CST Information for Students site (http://cstproject.ca/training-support/information-students).
