With expanding access to Provincial eHealth viewers such as CareConnect or Unified Clinical Information (UCI), private practice medical clinics in British Columbia are expected to implement appropriate security practices to ensure private patient information and the medical practice are protected. This introductory course supports medical professionals to gain practical knowledge and skills in protecting patient information security in their practice.

  • "All Hands on Deck!" - Learn how to train your clinical staff
  • "Keep It Secret & Keep It Safe" - Learn how to ensure the privacy of patient information
