Abstract: This webinar will review the requirements for the use of personal health information for research purposes. The webinar will cover such topics as consent, the use of de-identified vs. identifiable information, research ethics board approvals, research agreements and the distinction between the “use” and “disclosure” of personal health information for research purposes. While the webinar will focus on the requirements set out in Ontario’s Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004 (PHIPA), it will also examine the legislative requirements in the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia.
