Come with me on my one‑day Advanced Privacy Officer training
on Tuesday 10 December 2019
...moving from policy to practice.
Kate Dewhirst Health Law - bringing the law to life.
You are the Privacy Officer of a Hospital, Family Health Team, long term care home, community health provider, mental health agency, public health unit, birth centre, NPLC or pharmacy, or other healthcare institution.
You've taken the training, you understand the law and the theory - but now you want to sharpen your skills and boost your experience for the role.
Join me in December for a great day of interactive scenario-based training that will test, challenge and hone your privacy skills.
Learning by doing: here are some of the hot-topic privacy scenarios used in our training:
Using scenario-based learning with changing facts and twists and turns (like in real life) of actual privacy cases my clients faced (anonymized)
or that came before the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario in the last few years, you will strengthen your privacy knowledge, skills and judgement.
You investigate a real snooping incident. Will you ask the right questions of your staff?
Will your actions avoid an order from the IPC?
A clinician comes to you with questions about a dispute involving two children and their separated parents. Will you give the correct advice?
A request arrives for records outside the regular chart. What steps will you take to satisfy the requester?
A deceased patient
Can you work out what information to give to whom?
Request for correction
An angry patient demands you make changes to their record. You know you can’t do everything they ask, but can you satisfy the IPC?
Your team member has shared a client’s information with a friend. Now what?
How often are you supposed to be auditing? What should an audit look like?
Resistant team members
A case study in getting a whole team on-board with privacy.
Plus you get a privacy officer update session, a bring-your-own questions ask-me-anything session with me and the opportunity to meet and network with other Privacy Officers.
Things participants have said after attending this training course:
Kate's infectious enthusiasm and expertise about health law, coupled with hands on , how to
practical and relevant information make this course a must for anyone who has a privacy role in
From the moment I met Kate I knew that I could call her anytime and she would be there for me in
case of a privacy breach, she listens and always has great advice.
I consider myself a relatively skilled and knowledgeable Privacy professional. Kate did an awesome job addressing the issues that come across my desk. Going through Kate’s scenarios made me realize how much I didn’t know. I would definitely recommend this training session to anyone that already has the foundations of health privacy. Worth every dollar.
LOVE Kate and her team. Her privacy training is "spot-on" she keeps it real and provides tools for
day to day management of all things privacy.
