83641 - MIPS Privacy & Confidentiality online module

  • : Online

 

An online module to MIPS general practice members covering all administrative and clinico legal issues surrounding the privacy and confidentiality of health records and health information of patients

Relevance to General Practice

This is a very important issue for general practitioners. There is the Medical Board code of conduct, there are Federal and State Government laws and a range of clinico legal risks influencing decisions as to whether to release or not release , health information . GPs need to be on top of these issues and minimise any potential for breaches of the law. MIPS experience shows there are occasional breaches of the requirements and a need for ongoing education, mainly for young practitioners and IMGs.

Learning outcomes
  • Explain the various clinico legal principles of privacy and confidentiality of health records
  • Identify when to and when not to release health information
  • Implement strategies to minimise risk around release of health information
  • Delivery
