The Health Sector Coordinating Council recently released a new and improved version of its free cybersecurity training video series. The series, entitled, ‘Cybersecurity for the Clinician,’ explains using easy, non-technical language the basics for how breaches can affect clinical operations and patient safety, and how clinicians can work to keep healthcare data, systems, and patients safe from cyber threats without losing time away from patients.
The updated version incorporates feedback from a number of users who utilize the series as part of their cyber training programs. It is designed to be flexible for both administrators and end users, who can distribute the entire course, slow release bite-size video slides, or send out the final quiz to certify existing experts. The eight-episode series, which runs about 45 minutes, also allows users to pause and rewind the video playback for more engaging learning and includes closed captions.
In addition to offering one CME/CEU credit hour, the series may also satisfy documentation requirements of the CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule, the National Fire Protection Association and The Joint Commission for facility Hazard Vulnerability Analysis and Risk Analysis and Training. It is intended for private clinical practices, health provider institutions of all types and sizes, academic institutions, and healthcare support functions.
Clinicians, students, professionals, and institutions with training programs may view the series on YouTube or download it in eLearning format using this link. For more information, visit the Health Sector Coordinating Council website.
