The PHIA Online Education Program is intended to help custodians to understand their obligations under the Act, as well as to assist them in providing education and training to those they have a responsibility for under the Act. PHIA requires that custodians of personal health information ensure that their employees, agents, contractors and volunteers, and those health professionals who have a right to treat persons at a health care facility operated by the custodian are aware of the duties imposed by the Act and regulations and by the custodian’s information policies and procedures.

The PHIA Online Education Program is a comprehensive introduction to PHIA and may be taken by anyone wishing to better understand the Act and/or their obligations under it. The course should take approximately 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
