New Digital Clinical Safety elearning is available

Posted on: February 22nd, 2022 by Rachel Gowland No Comments

Healthcare provision and delivery within the NHS today is highly dependent on information technology, which includes sophisticated systems and services. Whilst the use of health IT can deliver significant healthcare benefits, failure or unintended use of health IT systems has the potential to introduce hazards and associated patient harm.

An Introduction to Digital Clinical Safety elearning programme

This elearning programme was developed with the NHS Digital Clinical Safety team and aims to support a culture of digital clinical safety across NHS organisations. It is designed to support health and social care organisations and manufacturers of Health IT to ensure that all members of staff within the organisation have an awareness of digital clinical safety.

Those working in clinical and non-clinical roles within and for health and social care organisations will benefit from completing this elearning programme. Learners can expect an interactive learning experience, with questions to assess their knowledge. A certificate will be available to download and print after completing the elearning programme.

You can read more about Digital Clinical Safety on the NHS Digital website.
