Privacy Awareness Training
As an employer and health care provider, you are responsible to provide training to all of your employees about privacy awareness. If you don’t provide the training, if the employees don’t understand the policies and there is a privacy breach, then the healthcare provider is more likely to be held accountable under the legislation and face penalties including fines and even prison!
Protect your organization and your patients. Equip your staff with the information they need to confidently and correctly handle personal health information. Healthcare businesses who want employee and supervisor level privacy awareness training to support key policies, procedures and risk management programs need a privacy awareness training program.

I have used Corridor's Privacy Awareness in Healthcare: Essentials online training program. The course has helped satisfy the training requirements of the Health Information Act. Staff go through the course at their own pace while we monitor to ensure completion.
The online Privacy Training from Corridor Interactive helped EFW in providing consistent and comprehensive privacy training to all of our staff. The information in the modules was presented in a way that was relevant and easy to understand and offered the added benefit of being able to be completed by staff in smaller time periods using the automatic bookmarks. One of the best features was the ability to customize the program and add in links and references to specific EFW Radiology processes and policies. This made the training not just another off the shelf product, but something relatable to our organization as a whole.
This self-paced on-line education includes:
- Introduction to the course
- Privacy legislation introduction
- Understanding Privacy
- Privacy Principles
- Collection, Use and Disclosure
- Roles and Responsibilities
- Privacy Breaches

Certificate of Completion
“When we know better, we can we do better.”
As an employer and health care provider, you are responsible to provide training to all of your employees about privacy awareness. Protect your organization and your patients. Equip your staff with the information they need to confidently and correctly handle personal health information.
I am constructively obsessive about privacy and confidentiality in the healthcare sector–and I think you should be, too! I designed this course to assist healthcare providers, clinic managers, practice managers, privacy officers and independent healthcare practice owners provide practical privacy awareness training that was easy to implement, consistent content, cost-effective and meaningful to your day-to-day business.
When each member of your independent healthcare practice completes this privacy awareness course, you will have clearer expectations and confidence that your team will maintain the privacy, confidentiality and security of your patient’s health information. Give your patients the gift of privacy. Improve your healthcare practice with privacy awareness education.

This is my first job in a healthcare practice. Do I know enough to start the course?
You bet! The course is easy to read and I explain all the terms that you need to know. There are a lot of practical examples, too, to make it easier for you to apply what you have learned to your job.
I've worked in healthcare for a long time. Do I still need to take this course?
You bet! Seasoned professionals like yourself have an extra obligation to share your knowledge with new workers. This course will help you to refresh key principles and suggest wording, examples, and key messages that you can use to train new employees to their specific tasks in the workplace. The course will help you to advocate for the privacy rights of your patients. Unfortunately, we have many examples where trained professionals who “should have known better” make errors in judgement causing privacy breaches that affect our patients, our business, and the reputation of healthcare. Healthcare practitioners and owners have a responsibility to ensure that everyone in the practice receive comprehensive privacy awareness training regularly.
Will I get a certificate of completion that I can give my employer?
Yes – at the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to complete a short on-line quiz to confirm that you understand the key concepts. Then you will have access to a Certificate of Completion that you can download and share with whomever you choose.
