PMA Information governance workshop

PMA (formerly Practice Managers Association)
Delivery Method: Virtual

Understanding the changes that the new regulations bring and preparing for them gives a great opportunity for us all to refresh our knowledge and understanding confidentiality, integrity and availability of data. In an age where our patient’s confidence and trust is ever more put under strain, understanding an individual’s rights including access to their own information helps to build positive relationships.

This workshop is designed to present what we all need to do to maintain good safe information practice and what is needed to comply with our responsibilities under data protection. Helping to understand common data security risks, frequent errors and their impact. The identification and reporting of incidents and near misses and bringing good practices to the workplace.

This workshop is practical and easily digestible for those with responsibility and liability for Information Governance within the Primary Care sector. The day is facilitated by experts in both Information Governance and Primary Care and will be very interactive. It will seek to provide clarity and an objective approach in preparing for all aspects of Information Governance and GDPR.
