NEW! Privacy Awareness in Healthcare Training – Dental Practices
Privacy Awareness Training for Dental Practices
Is your dental clinic in compliance with the Alberta Dental Association & College, Health Information Act (HIA) and Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA)?
Dentists and dental practices in Alberta are required to have an ongoing privacy program to ensure the protection of private records and patient information. The appropriate collection, use, and disclosure of personal information is critical to maintaining privacy for patients that choose to trust in your practice. Accomplishing this important goal demands an up-to-date training strategy.
Regular privacy awareness training protects patients, employees and your business. The key components of your training strategy must revolve around ensuring HIA compliance to mitigate risk of a privacy breach. Everyone in your clinic – dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, office staff, contractors and even practicum students and volunteers must understand how to correctly handle personal information, so it remains confidential and secure. Maintaining high standards that safeguard information privacy and security is an essential aspect of asset management for any health care provider.
Corridor Interactive's training includes a personalized printable certificate of achievement to support compliance and may be used for your continuing education credits, too! Our training delivers industry best practices and is ideal for all levels of staff in any dental organization or clinic that collects, uses or discloses personally identifying information. This includes direct care providers in your practice as well as privacy officers, support staff and any other employees who are not directly involved in patient care.

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.

Healthcare practitioners and owners have a responsibility to ensure that everyone in the practice receive comprehensive privacy awareness training regularly.
