BCPA Competencies:

Empowerment, Autonomy, Rights, and Equity – When patients are calm, centered and more clear-headed, they can make better decisions for themselves, fostering self-determination and client engagement. Calmer patient advocates will also treat the client with more respect and compassion in all interactions.

Communication and Interpersonal Relationships – Calm, centered and more clear-headed patient advocates will be able to provide more empathetic, non-judgmental, supportive listening and interactions that promote patient self-determination, well-being, resilience, and confidence.

Professionalism, Professional Development, and Practice – Calm, centered and more clear-headed patient advocates will act more professionally with their patients. And they will be able to assess the client relationship on a regular basis, continue to recognize, develop, and maintain professional boundaries as defined in the Ethical Standards for a Board Certified Patient Advocate and avoid situations that may jeopardize those boundaries – such as yelling at or getting frustrated with patients.
