Objectifs du programme

The Support for Assistive Services in Health and Social Services Institutions vocational training program prepares students to practise the occupations of orderly (préposée et préposé aux bénéficiaires [PAB]), and health and social services assistant (HSSA) in institutions in the health and social services network (hospitals, residential and long-term care centres [CHSLDs], rehabilitation centres, local community service centres).

These two occupations involve providing help and assistive services related to activities of daily life (ADL) to clients of all ages in health and social services institutions. The work consists in providing support to these clients to help compensate for their disabilities and maintain or encourage their autonomy in carrying out their ADL.

PABs and HSSAs also have to plan their work, and collaborate in activities related to the continuity of care and to palliative and end-of-life care. They also carry out tasks related to the cleaning, disinfection and storage of equipment and materials, and the cleaning and tidying up of the work environment.

PABs and HSSAs are constantly concerned with preventing and controlling infections and contamination. They are equally concerned with preventing risks to the health and safety of clients, themselves and others, and with protecting the environment.

Fonction de travail
