Compliance Training and Education

New employees are educated on the Compliance Program (including the Code of Conduct and Compliance Office functions) during the orientation process.

Additionally, the Compliance Office provides mandatory annual Compliance training (including the Code of Conduct) for all employees through computer-based and/or in-person training sessions. The Compliance Education Policy (available to employees in PolicyStat) governs timely completion of required Compliance training by the UNC Health Care workforce.

The Compliance Office periodically distributes regulatory updates to department leadership and staff through targeted email alerts, newsletters, a monthly WebEx series, and in-person training. The Compliance SharePoint site (available to employees) provides additional educational material to support the Compliance function. Department leaders are ultimately responsible for ensuring that their department is compliant with new laws and regulations.

Certain Compliance information is provided to contractors, vendors, and agents as necessary or appropriate, through the Purchasing Department and other sources.
