Accessible Information Standard

A new elearning resource on the Accessible Information Standard is now available to access.

The Accessible Information Standard aims to establish a framework so that patients and service users who have information or communication needs relating to a disability or sensory loss, receive accessible information and communication support. The elearning resource provides training for all health and social care staff to help them effectively apply and follow the Standard.

There are two elearning sessions available:

  • Accessible Information Standard: Introduction provides an overview of the Standard and explains how to ensure that the information and communication support needs of people with a disability or sensory loss are identified, recorded, flagged, shared and met.
  • Accessible Information Standard: Towards Excellence builds upon the Introduction session and aims to enhance learners’ knowledge, skills and confidence around supporting individuals with information and communication needs and effectively applying the Standard in health and care settings
