Tuesday, October 25, 2011

The Authority has developed a guide that gives practical information for health and social care staff around the management of information. The guide details requirements, what you should know, benefits and making information governance a success. It was distributed to health and social care providers nationally with the aim of raising awareness around information governance and encouraging all providers to set it as a priority.

The information governance self-assessment tool is an interactive list of questions to which service providers are asked to simply answer “yes” or “no to determine their compliance with information governance requirements and practices. It is a resource to be used by the management team of organisations for learning and development. It is designed to highlight areas where urgent action is required and where improvements may be made.
