Staff awareness and understanding of patient privacy should be promoted in a routine and ongoing way. Staff should have access to training in privacy principles and requirements.
Staff should contact the Privacy Contact Officer or the HR/ Learning and Development unit at their local health service for information regarding face-to-face training.
Online privacy training resources are also available via the Health Education and Training Institute (HETI).
Staff will be required to register and create an account prior to logging on.
The privacy modules can be found under the heading 'Communication'.

- Privacy Module 1 - Know Your Boundaries
This training program is suitable for all NSW Health staff.
- Privacy Module 2 - Handling Personal and Personal Health Information
This training is suitable for NSW Health staff with responsibility for managing personal and health information.
