What is information governance?

Information governance helps manage and control information by supporting the organisation's activities and ensuring compliance with its duties. Patients entrust their personal information to healthcare organisations, creating distinct requirements for confidentiality, privacy, and security.

Why is information governance training important?

The effective delivery of healthcare services requires the substantial collection, processing and exchange of personal information and data. Ensuring the appropriate collection, use and security of this information is a significant legal responsibility for healthcare organisations and individual healthcare workers.

Recent high profile cases of personal data loss and breaches of confidential information, with a significant number of incidents coming from the health sector, have, however, focused and renewed the requirement for all healthcare staff to have an awareness of their responsibilities in using and safeguarding sensitive information.

What is the purpose of the information governance assessment?

The purpose of information governance assessments is to enable health and social care organisations to measure their compliance against the law and central guidance and to see whether information is handled correctly and protected from unauthorised access, loss, damage and destruction.

Information governance training - meeting employers' legal obligations

The health sector has a responsibility to ensure delivery of services and workforce management which fully demonstrate and reflect the principles of equality, diversity and human rights. It is through the active and effective understanding of Equality, Diversity and Human Rights that the health sector will be able to recruit and retain a workforce that is more reflective of and sensitive to the population it seeks to serve.
