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, a 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.

  • Practical strategies for developing a proactive approach to privacy
  • Privacy challenges in the context of consent, capacity and substitute decision-making
