ACP collaborated with eleven other Alberta health profession regulators to develop resources for health professionals who are at risk of exposure, or may have been exposed, to blood and body fluid. Representatives from each college worked with consultants to develop a series of online tools based on published resources from Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services.

The tools are designed to support community health care providers and increase their awareness of the appropriate response to blood and body fluid exposure (BBFE). According to clinical evidence, proper post-exposure assessment, including the timely provision of prophylaxis, reduces the likelihood of blood borne virus transmission following occupational BBFEs. Tools include:

  • Protecting Yourself and Preparing Your Workplace
  • Your Post-Exposure Pathway
  • Have You Been Exposed to BBFE? (an interactive algorithm)

We encourage both pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to visit http://bbfeab.ca/index.html and engage in learning from the online modules, posters, and other BBFE resources available.
