A framework to help you:
  • Assess your knowledge and skills against provincial concurrent disorders competencies
  • Identify and select helpful resources, courses and activities to support your learning
  • Create a customized learning plan
What happens next?
  • Gain a clear perspective

    Self-assess your knowledge and skills using the BCMHSUS Concurrent Disorders Competencies.
    Compare you assessment to the recommended competency goals for your occupational role across these four domains:

    • Understanding Concurrent Disorders
    • Partnerships in Care
    • Recovery-oriented
    • Care Pathways Safe Transitions
  • Clarify your individual learning path

    Use the assessment to decide which domain(s) you would like to focus on to find resources, programs and activities to enhance your professional development.
    All resources and programs are carefully created or curated by BCMHSUS.

  • Make a plan. Learn. Repeat.

    Add courses and other activities to your personalized learning plan. Set reminders in your calendar, track your progress and add custom activities. Check back in to update your plan, and re-assess your knowledge and skills anytime.

  • Origins

    In 2018 BCMHSUS commissioned an environmental scan to identify best practices related to workforce capacity for the screening, assessment and treatment of concurrent disorders. This work ultimately culminated in 42 Competencies. An extensive review and refinement process involving internal and external stakeholders resulted in an updated CD competency framework and toolkit that launched in spring 2022. Suggested levels of competency by occupational role are provided as a guide and help learners benchmark their learning. The Learning Pathway accompanies the self-assessment and contains online course recommendations and self-directed activities. Learners can create and customize a plan and keep track of their progress.
