As health care organizations and providers, your privacy practices are under scrutiny from your patients, residents or clients (and their families), the courts, the media and the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC/O). Attorney General prosecutions are underway under the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA), and class actions have been filed in the courts. This year, Bill 119 amended PHIPA in numerous important ways (including doubling the fines to up to $100,000 for individuals and $500,000 for organizations and requiring reports to the IPC/O of certain privacy breaches and reports to regulatory Colleges).
This course focuses on Ontario legislation, but is of value to any health sector Privacy Officer. It will give you confidence in your role by giving you the information and skills you need to succeed as a Privacy Officer or as:

WHY DID WE CHANGE THE COURSE FORMAT?
Some of you have said that travel at this time of year is tough, and/or that you welcome online opportunities, and that you love the community and problem-solving that comes with a membership that extends beyond a day a month for three months (the previous format). We have passed on that savings to you, and are pleased to offer new and interactive ways to learn where you get what you need.
Cove Academy is a new and innovative training platform. Our lead trainer in the course is Mary Jane Dykeman, a Principal of Cove Academy and lawyer at DDO Health Law. We bring experience, humour and vitality to each training session. We work with health care organizations across the continuum of care (from primary to quaternary care, community and social services, academic centres, as well as children’s, seniors’ and mental health and addiction providers). We know exactly why PHIPA was drafted as it was, the nuance of PHIPA’s application within your environment, and the common and complex issues Privacy Officers and others working in privacy face daily. We have developed scenarios that will resonate with you.
