We are excited to announce that we have signed up as a supporter of Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) 2018 — a campaign dedicated to informing individuals and organisations about how personal information can be better protected.
PAW aims to improve Australians’ understanding and awareness of privacy rights and organisations’ privacy obligations. This year’s theme is ‘Privacy: from principles to practice’ to highlight that privacy today is founded on the principles of transparency and accountability.
Privacy is an integral part of our core values of “Trusted, Friendly and Caring” at Western Hospital, therefore how we manage the valuable information we handle every day and any potential privacy risks is an essential part of building and maintaining patient/consumer trust.
This week is great time to increase our awareness and talk about how we protect patients’ privacy at Western Hospital.
All staff and consumers are encouraged to find out more about PAW visiting the website: www.oaic.gov.au/paw2018 and also don’t forget to have a look at the information sheets and webinars available.
