Information Governance Training

Provide essential information governance training to your workforce with these CPD-approved learning resources. All healthcare staff are required to have a full understanding of their responsibilities regarding patient information and confidentiality, including legislation such as the Freedom of Information and Data Protection acts.

Information governance training for health also highlights the risks posed by keeping inaccurate or inconsistent records, along with the accepted best practice for record storage. Poor record-keeping not only endangers the patient, but also hinders the treatment process and places your staff at risk of making flawed judgements based on the misinformation provided.

Employees must also be aware of patient information pathways, and the correct procedures for the provision of information prescriptions. This extends to the policies surrounding Subject Access Requests (SARs), and the period within which they must be handled.

The information governance online training and face-to-face training materials listed below include standalone self-assessments so learners can verify their understanding of the material covered. This also means individuals who already have experience in this area can determine whether there are any gaps in their knowledge.
