Job Information

The Manager provides leadership in privacy breach investigations, legal reviews, coroner's investigations, potential litigation incidents and all patient safety incidents, critical incidents and unusual occurrences related to personal health information, which can require immediate and accurate attention. Many of the issues that arise from these investigations are unique, complex, very personal and of a highly confidential nature, and generally relate to patients/clients, staff, physicians and/or the business operations of the organization. Consequently, the nature of these investigations will require the incumbent to develop therapeutic, client centered relationships with individuals who have experienced traumatic events as a result of system errors. Given the nature of these investigations some patients, clients and/or staff may become abusive.

This position is required to maintain a working knowledge of IPAC, client experience, clinical education and quality management to provide leave coverage for the Manager colleagues in the Division. The Manager also shares leave coverage for the Director of Quality, Risk and Client Experience.

Typically, the above qualifications would be attained by:

Completion of a Bachelor's Degree in a health-related discipline, business, organizational management or law with a minimum of five (5) years' work-related experience in a health discipline is required, including a minimum of two (2) years' leading a team.

Equivalencies will be considered.
