  • The implementation of Z8000 – Canadian Health Care Facilities – can help improve efficiency, effectiveness, sustainability and overall patient outcomes by building safety practices into the design and construction of health care facilities. Key design, planning and workflow elements can impact staff efficiency and safety. This video-based training, based on Z8000, helps participants understand how to minimize health care costs by planning and designing "back of the house" areas right the first time.

    Technical and functional requirements that contribute to making health care facilities work for staff will be emphasized through the use of the OASIS (Operational efficiency, Accessibility, Safety and security, Infection prevention and control and Sustainability) principle.

    Hear from the Vice Chair of the CSA Group Technical Committee for Z8000 and understand how this new Standard will can apply to your organization. Gain insight that can help you in your implementation programs and increase your understanding of Z8000 requirements, contributing to your future construction, renovation and maintenance/repair projects.

    Topics Include

    • Medical Device Reprocessing
    • Laboratory Services
    • Environmental Services
    • Materials Management
    • Food Services
  • An In-depth look at the key workflow, patient movement, design and planning elements that influence the patient experience. Learn how to minimize health care costs while maximizing your focus on the patient. Put the OASIS principle (Operational efficiency, Accessibility, Safety and security, Infection prevention and control and Sustainability) to work in examining the technical and functional requirements that Make FacilitiesWork for the Patients.

    Topics to include:

    • Medical/Surgical inpatient Units including Maternal and Newborn and Critical Care
    • Patient Room design, planning for the patient, the family and the staff
    • Outpatient/Ambulatory Services including Dialysis, Oncology, Emergency Care and Procedure Areas.
    • Patient Management and Workflow
  • Partnered with CGEP, this is a training course for MDRTs.

  • The Z8000-11 Standard provides requirements and guidance for the planning, design, and construction of Canadian health care facilities. It is intended to be used by all facilities providing health care services regardless of type, size, location, or range of services. The Health Care Facility shall be planned and designed through the use of a project process, which includes several stages of planning to identify health needs of the catchment community and the expected role of the Health Care Facility; the translation of those needs into services/activity levels; and calculate space requirements of the services and a facility plan to accommodate the space. Each step in the process builds on the previous and a complete planning process should maintain this sequence to ensure a fully integrated and thought-out facility plan. This course will guide you through the complete planning process and provide insights for your own planning projects.
    Construction based process requirements and stages of the planning process including:
     An in-depth review of the planning process requirements and how they can improve your own project plans
     Design, procurement, commissioning, and construction requirements
     Take-over, occupancy, and post occupancy requirements

  • Medical gases are used every day by millions of people in thousands of different locations. These gases perform a critical role in healthcare delivery in such locations as hospitals, homes, ambulances, dental offices, and more. This course which has been jointly developed with the Canadian Healthcare Engineering Society (CHES) will provide an overview of medical gases, helping students better identify what they are, their uses, and safety considerations when they are in use. Students will also gain insight into the governing Standard, Z7396.1, Medical Gas Pipeline Systems, Part 1: Pipelines for Medical Gases and Vacuum, the foundation for installation of medical gas systems within healthcare facilities.
