Participants in the nurses and midwives elearning or classroom training programmes listed below will develop an understanding of the importance of patient confidentiality, as well as the accepted procedures for documentation, record keeping and conflict resolution.

A comprehensive resource will also explain professional accountability, and demonstrate the role of ethics within the healthcare sector. Health workers must endeavour to provide person-centred care, facilitating communication with patients, and being prepared to address complex needs practically and respectfully.
