Dykeman to chair Osgoode healthcare privacy program
Toronto health lawyer Mary Jane Dykeman will chair the upcoming 2015 Legal Guide to Privacy and Information Management in Healthcare program, run by Osgoode Professional Development.
The April 9 course, available in-person or live on the web, will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Osgoode Professional Development Centre, located at 1 Dundas St. W., 26th Floor, in Toronto.
It will feature a faculty of leading legal, privacy and health experts and aims to provide those working and advising in the healthcare arena with a comprehensive understanding of the pressing issues and practical strategies to prevent, reduce the risk of, and respond to privacy breaches.
In addition to chairing the program, Dykeman, partner with Dykeman Dewhirst O'Brien LLP, will present a case study at 2:45 p.m. with Judith Wahl, executive director, Advocacy Centre for the Elderly, on privacy and video/audio technology in a healthcare setting.
"Given the current climate of privacy in the health sector, including new orders of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, media coverage of privacy breaches and developments in the courts, it is likely to be a very dynamic session," says Dykeman.
