Protect both your organization and your patients by equipping your staff with the information they need to confidently and correctly handle personal health information.
Corridor’s Privacy Awareness in Health Care course trains health care staff to understand basic health care privacy principles and how to handle personal information, use safeguards, and recognize and report a privacy breach.
Privacy Awareness in Health Care is available in two province-specific versions:
- Ontario: The Ontario course covers the province’s Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA), including Bill 119, the Health Information Protection Act (HIPA).
- Alberta: The Alberta course covers the province’s Health Information Act (HIA) as well as the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA).
Each version speaks to the provincial legislation and guidelines that apply to personal health information in that province.
This course is for you if you:
- work in health care or social services
- are a member of a health profession or work with health care professionals
- are a business vendor, contractor, or provide services with a health care or social services organization
