Health Sector Privacy Officer Training

 

Health Sector Privacy Officer Training – to register online

The privacy practices of health care organizations are under increasing scrutiny from patients (and their families), the courts, the media and the regulator, the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC/O). As Privacy Officer, it is your job to ensure your organization is compliant with privacy laws and IPC/O guidelines. Whether you are new to the Privacy Officer role or are a seasoned privacy professional, you may wonder whether you have the latest information to do your job properly.  You may have already discovered that it is not enough to know the technicalities of the law; it is also important that you understand the spirit of the legislation and how to apply the law to specific and sometimes difficult situations.

This is the only course of its kind in Canada.

This course will give you confidence in your role by giving you the information and skills you need to succeed as a Privacy Officer.

You receive:

  • 20 hours of intensive instruction from leading legal educators in the field
    • 3 full day sessions each available in person in downtown Toronto or via webcast
  • Reassurance that you have the most current information on privacy practices and expectations for health care organizations
  • Practical and dynamic skills training for adult learners using scenarios, stories, quizzes and assignments
  • Sample tools to adapt to your organization for your everyday use, including (and many more):
    • Privacy program checklist
    • Privacy policies
    • Privacy breach checklist
    • Privacy breach notification
  • A privacy library
    • The primary Ontario privacy resource – “Guide to the Ontario Personal Health Information Protection Act: A Practical Guide for Health Care Providers” (H. Perun, M. Orr, F. Dimitriadis, Irwin Law, 2005)
    • Online resources are compiled for you in a few downloadable PDFs so you do not have to find the resources yourself and print them individually
  • A reading list to prepare you before each session
  • Homework to assist you to work through your own organization’s documents
  • A report card you complete yourself at the end of the course to share with your Board or supervisor to demonstrate your organization’s privacy compliance status and remaining privacy gaps, if any
  • A letter outlining the training you have received, for your organization’s due diligence

While we focus on Ontario legislation – this course is of value to any health sector Privacy Officer.
