Do you work in occupational health, at a First Nations care centre or a remote nursing station, for a federal jurisdiction (like RCMP) or an authorized homecare service or are you self-employed?
If any of these describe your practice setting, you may be eligible to apply for access to Netcare as a custodian.
One of first things you need to do is submit a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (OIPC). Mary Golab (Portfolio Officer, Health Information Act) will provide a brief and general overview of Alberta's Health Information Act and how it applies to nurses with a particular focus on the duty to prepare Privacy Impact Assessments.
