PIXALERE (for Home Health students providing wound care) 

Educational institution instructors/faculty with students placed in Home Health settings where students will be required to document wound care in Pixalere as part of their leaning outcomes are required to attend training provided by a health authority in B.C. and then train their students. Pixalere is a program used across B.C. health authorities to document wounds care. Preceptorship students accepted to Fraser Health from institutions outside of the Lower Mainland have responsibility to ensure the student is prepared for the clinical setting prior to their start date (review HSPnet destination profiles). Group students placed in Fraser Health should receive the training from their instructors.

Pixalere accounts for students should be requested through student.placement@fraserhealth.ca for the period of their clinical placement.
