The AMA offers physicians and their teams privacy and security training at no cost. Community-based physicians may enrol their clinic into the new Learn@AMA platform to receive comprehensive training tailored to their roles. This training was made possible by a limited time grant provided by Alberta Health. Community-based clinic teams and Primary Care Networks are encouraged to participate while the training is available.

The upcoming curricula include:

  • Fundamental Privacy Training - Strengthen your whole team’s knowledge about privacy and security. Learn about privacy laws in Alberta, how to protect patient information and reduce the risk of breaches in your office.
  • Advanced Privacy Training - Designed for custodians and office leadership who want to advance their knowledge on privacy topics such as agreements, PIAs, mitigating breaches, cybersecurity and consent. Coming March 2022
  • Privacy Officer Training - Build your confidence as a Privacy Officer by learning practical tips to applying privacy and security practices into everyday clinic routines. Coming December 2021.
