Privacy breaches can result in significant reputational risk, regulatory investigations and costly litigation. Recent high profile cases dealing with personal health information highlight how critical this issue has become for healthcare professionals and organizations. If you are a healthcare risk manager, privacy officer, director of care/professional practice, lawyer advising on privacy and information management issues, nurse or nurse educator, you must have a current understanding of the key issues and how to deal with them.

Healthcare systems, large and small, are in the midst of increasingly demanding privacy challenges. In this constantly evolving arena, it has never been more critical to be on top of the latest developments. These include:

  • The new PHIPA amendments (mandatory reporting & expanded IPC inspection powers)
  • Prioritizing and evaluating risks with a privacy impact assessment
  • Health information custodians and the permitted exceptions allowing for disclosure of PHI
  • Organizational concerns around using the cloud to store PHI

This timely OsgoodePD program, designed and delivered by a top faculty of leading legal, privacy and health experts, will provide those working in and advising in the healthcare arena with a comprehensive understanding of the pressing issues and practical strategies so that you and your organization are equipped to prevent and effectively manage privacy breaches.

PLUS! Learn from a Case Study developed specifically for this program. Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in an interactive discussion about your organization’s obligations and how you respond to potential privacy breaches.
