PeakCare, QCOSS and the Quality Collaboration Network present Consent, Right to Information and Privacy

This workshop is for workers with quality assurance, audit, certification, accreditation responsibilities and/or responsibilities for managing privacy functions, responding to requests for personal information or steering organisational practice regarding personal information management in community-based services working with children, young people and families.

The workshop will include presentations (and the opportunity to ask questions) about common tensions and dilemmas in:

  • Gathering informed consent taking account of capacity to consent and timing issues – Official Solicitor and Director of Legal Services, Office of the Public Guardian
  • Embedding best practice principles when responding to personal information requests – Right to Information, Information Privacy and Screening, Dept of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services
  • Privacy and social media, mandatory reporting of data breaches under Commonwealth legislation – Office of the Information Commissioner Queensland

The final session will be a panel discussion involving presenters, an industry representative and a service user to respond to audience questions and delve further into the nuts and bolts of decision-making in these areas.
