Statutory Duty of Candour - Level 3 - Online Course - CPD Accredited.

Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Statutory Duty of Candour training course for healthcare and social care professionals.

The Care Quality Commission’s ‘Regulation 20: Duty of candour’ sets out the requirements for health and social care providers across the UK. This regulation intends to ensure that providers are open and transparent with people who use services and other ‘relevant persons’ (people acting lawfully on their behalf) in general about care and treatment.

The professional duty of candour refers to openness and honesty when things go wrong within the health and social care services. It is a professional responsibility, to be honest with patients when things go wrong. As a doctor, nurse or midwife, allied health professional or health and social care support worker, it is imperative to be open and honest with your patients/service users, colleagues and employers.

However, someone from the team has to take responsibility for each of these tasks and to give support as needed. It should always be made clear whose responsibility it is to do so within the organisation or wider multidisciplinary team.
