This course teaches basic principles of confidentiality and privacy, the types of information that are protected by law, and good recordkeeping and security.
This course is designed to align with the objectives for information governance (England) as defined in the Core Skills Training Framework.
Information governance is about how to handle and process sensitive information. There are strict laws, regulations, and practices that protect the confidentiality and security of sensitive information. In the UK, healthcare and social care organisations and their employees are required to follow these guidelines when handling, using, or disclosing certain types of information. If you use or share information incorrectly, you can be sued, fined, or even imprisoned!
This course on information governance can help you avoid such consequences. You will learn basic principles of confidentially and privacy, the types of information that are protected by law, and what your responsibilities are relating to good recordkeeping and security.
