So you’re a Privacy Officer...What Does That Mean?
Rachel Hayward, Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner
A privacy officer plays a key role in most health care organizations in Alberta. He/she is responsible for ensuring staff know and understand their responsibilities under the HIA and acts as a resource for patients and staff who have questions regarding the privacy of the health information collected, used and disclosed by the organization. But what does that really mean?
This presentation will assist privacy officers in understanding their roles and responsibilities in this area and will benefit all PCN staff by contributing to a greater understanding of privacy requirements. The session will focus on ways to achieve successful privacy management and compliance, providing tools and techniques for implementing a successful privacy program.
