About Digital Education

Privacy and Cyber Security Training stop sign

Digital Education supports Privacy and Cyber Security training. Organizations like UHN are protecting themselves against cyber attacks to prevent unauthorized access to, use of, modification of and destruction of our vital information. It is everyone's responsibility to protect the organization, no matter what role you hold. To maintain system access and/or affiliation with UHN, it is your responsibility to understand and follow UHN's privacy and security policies (found on UHN's corporate intranet).

You are also required to complete the Integrated Privacy and Cyber Security elearning module in order to access the UHN network.

Please only complete the module applicable to you:

  1. Have you been given access to UHN’s online Learning Centre “MyLearning” (please check your welcome or onboarding package if unsure)?  If yes, please complete the Integrated Privacy and Cyber Security module by logging into MyLearning.
  2. If you have no access to MyLearning (i.e. you do not have a UHN employee number), please visit the UHN's Privacy eLearning page to learn where to complete the training.

Clinical Applications

The Digital Education team core objective is to support training programs for the UHN Electronic Patient Record (EPR), which is used across the four UHN sites - Princess Margaret Cancer Centre (PM), Toronto General Hospital (TG), Toronto Rehab (TR) and Toronto Western Hospital (TW).  We also support training for the Oncology Patient Information System (OPIS) which is used at PM clinics, as well as the Pathways Healthcare Scheduling System (PHS) which is used by the administrative clinical community across all sites. Additionally, training support is provided to the TW Family Health Centre and satellite site, for their clinical management system:  PS Suite (PSS).  As an integral part of Digital, the education team also plays a key role in various initiatives for projects across the Digital partner sites.

EPR eLearning Modules

We offer Electronic Patient Record (EPR) online learning modules for UHN staff.  The benefits of eLearning are:

  • You may access UHN EPR training at any time, from any computer with internet access
  • All training is completed using a simulated UHN EPR application.
  • No login or password required. You simply go to the module and begin learning right away.
  • Online practice modules let you refresh your skills after training

Data Security

Data Security is responsible for overseeing EPR account creation for all users. All requests for new access or reactivation will be processed within 24 to 48 hours with the exception of the Nursing and Residents intake process, which may take a longer time to process.  Research Personnel should submit a copy of the REB approval letter and are granted read-only access by default unless the Principal Investigator (PI) authorizes another type of access.
