Privacy and Health Record Resource Handbook For Medical Practitioners in the Private Sector

19 Jan 2017

The AMA Privacy and Health Record Resource Handbook For Medical Practitioners in the Private Sector is regularly updated to keep abreast of the latest development in privacy law. More recently, the AMA worked with the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner to ensure that the  sample privacy policy is up to date and covers all necessary areas as required by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).

Members should refer to this sample privacy policy when revising their own privacy policy. The AMA recommends that medical practices regularly review their privacy policies.
