STATEMENT OF OCPD PRIVACY OBLIGATIONS TO LEARNERS AND SPEAKERS
OCPD is committed to the protection of all personal information collected and used in the operation and management of its programs. All personal information provided to OCPD will be protected in accordance with uOttawa Policy 90 and the applicable privacy legislation, including the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. OCPD and the 2024 Hypertension & Chronic Kidney Disease will not provide learner and speaker information (e.g. disclosure agreements, communications with speakers) to any third parties such as external organizations, sponsors or other industry concerns. OCPD does provide the Ottawa Hospital Academic Medical Organization with lists of members who speak for OCPD so they may qualify for TOHAMO recognition. Information collected by OCPD may be amended or deleted by the learner or speaker provided reasonable rationale and identification are provided. Learners and speakers may opt out of future contact either through the registration system or contacting us directly at: cpd@uottawa.ca

 

POLICY ON PATIENT PRIVACY
As our programs deal with clinical content, cases are frequently used in presentations. OCPD follows Ontario’s Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004 (PHIPA) which prohibits the disclosure of a patient’s healthcare information outside of a patient’s circle of care. While the Act permits use of personal health information for “educating agents to provide health care”, OCPD directs speakers to ensure that any case material does not provide any patient identifiers.
