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.

Investigate snooping

You investigate a real snooping incident. Will you ask the right questions of your staff? Will your actions avoid an order from the IPC?

Separated parents

A clinician comes to you with questions about a dispute involving two children and their separated parents. Will you give the correct advice?

Non-traditional records

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?

Wrongful disclosure

Your team member has shared a client’s information with a friend. Now what?

Audit requirements

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.
