Oulton College Participates in “Gift From The Heart”, Offers Free Oral Health Care to Refugees and Those in Need

On Saturday, April 9th 2016, students and faculty at Oulton’s Dental Education Centre will be joined by registered dental hygienists from across the region as part of the “Gift From The Heart” event. The event, which occurs annually across Canada, allows those in need to receive oral health care at no charge. In addition to those in need, the College will also be offering services at no charge to Syrian refugees.

“The profession of dental hygiene is forever evolving and this one day event, the Gift From The Heart, provides registered dental hygienists the opportunity to come together and educate everyone on the importance of preventing oral disease for a healthy mouth and healthy body,” says Bev Woods, CDHA member, event founder and participant.

The Moncton event will be hosted by Oulton College Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene students, who will also offer up education sessions for attendees. “This is a great opportunity for our students to engage with the community,” says Darcie Robichaud, President of Oulton College. “Oral care is extremely important. We are pleased to offer these services at no charge to those in need in our community, including the recent refugees who now call Moncton home.”

According to a press release issued by Gift From The Heart, over 800 clients were welcomed during the one-day event last year. The organization estimates that over $400,000 worth of no-cost dental hygiene services were provided.

Oulton’s Pharmacy Technician Program Granted Full Accreditation Status

The Pharmacy Technician program at Oulton College is the first college in Atlantic Canada, with instruction in English, to be granted full accreditation by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP). Full accreditation status means that the Pharmacy Technician Program at Oulton College has met rigorous national educational and industry standards. With the granting of this award, the public can be assured that the program contains the necessary content to graduate students who have the competency to practice safely and effectively as regulated pharmacy technicians throughout Canada. Successful completion of this CCAPP accredited program will allow graduates direct entry into national entry-to-practice exams. Passing these exams is a requirement of registration as a technician within Canada.

The role of the pharmacy technician throughout Canada is currently evolving and a new healthcare professional, the Registered Pharmacy Technician (RPhT), is emerging. The registered pharmacy technician will be taking on new responsibilities within the pharmacy and will be collaborating with pharmacists to ensure that patients receive optimal patient care. They will become valuable members of the pharmacy team. With legislative changes in NB on the horizon, this new healthcare professional will soon become regulated in the province, benefiting clients, pharmacists, and the healthcare system. Regulation of technicians will provide greater protection for the public as technicians take on more responsibility and the skills of pharmacists are used more effectively. Other provinces, like Ontario, Alberta, BC, and Nova Scotia have already moved forward in regulating the profession within their respective provinces.

If you’re interested in a profession as a Pharmacy Technician, give us a call and apply for our program starting October 2014!

LPN Program Making History

The Licensed Practical Nurse program at Oulton College is the first private college program in New Brunswick and yesterday was granted full accreditation status by the Association of New Brunswick Licensed Practical Nurses (ANBLPN). Oulton College has the only accredited private LPN program in the Maritimes.
