The Role of the Caldicott Guardian online learning

Our elearning programme, The Role of the Caldicott Guardian, is for Caldicott Guardians and those with an interest in finding out more about they do to keep people’s data safe, and ensure that wise decisions are made about its use.

The programme offers three, audience specific modules:

A module for all staff: Caldicott Guardians: sharing information and protecting confidentiality in health and care

The aim of this session is to raise awareness and inform a broad range of staff from   across health and social care of the importance of Caldicott Guardians and confidentiality in their setting, organisation, or sector. The learning would benefit staff working in the NHS, adult social care, local authorities and private sector partners.
