New social care information sharing session now available

Information Sharing

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with NHS Transformation Directorate to develop a new elearning session to help social care staff better understand the principles of sharing information.

Social care professionals have a legal duty to share information to support individual care. It helps them to make informed decisions, ensures that people receive safe care, enables the smooth transition of people between different care settings and enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of the service.

The Information Sharing programme is aimed at colleagues who work in social care settings and their supervisors who have responsibility for managing and/or sharing personal information.

The resource will help learners to understand the principles behind information sharing, show them how to apply the principles in practice and build confidence in using and sharing information.

At the end of the session learners will be able to explain the key principles to consider when deciding whether to share information and identify the circumstances in which staff should seek further advice.

For more information and to access the programme, please visit the Information Sharing session.
