This engaging NHS and Social Care-specific module will provide an overview of the benefits and legal requirements of adopting the Caldicott principles of dealing with patient-identifiable information in the workplace.
Having completed the course learners will be able to explain why it is important to an organisation, describe the main areas of legislation and regulation, explain what needs to be done and be in a position to promote best practice within your organisation.
The course is structured into a number of engaging learning activities which guide the learner through each topic. It is supported by graphics, animations and a range of knowledge challenges which not only help with the retention of information but which are constantly reinforcing key messages.
