Confidentiality and effective information handling are key components of professional practice for NMAHPs. These have a direct bearing on the quality of patient care and are taken seriously by your employer.
Training for safe information handling is mandatory and most NHSScotland Health Boards have made an Information Handling in Practice e-learning module available to staff through their learning management system (learnPro or AT-Learn).'
You may have to complete or have completed this module in your Health Board or elsewhere in Flying Start NHS®. If you have not, it will help to develop your knowledge and awareness of the issues around safe information handling. It takes around an hour to complete and can be completed in stages.
