CLEAR AND CONCISE CALDICOTT GUARDIAN
In an area of data protection law and clinical practice that is ever evolving, making balanced decisions to share data whilst maintaining confidentiality can be quite challenging.
The role of the Caldicott Guardian calls for an in-depth understanding of confidentiality and data protection laws, and the Caldicott Guardian Principles, and importantly how they are applied in clinical practice.
This must be underpinned by robust strategies and clear procedures that are necessary to ensure that the function is adequately resourced and effectively managed.
We provide clear, concise and engaging training experiences that enables Caldicott Guardians to not only successfully fulfill the function, but to make complex decisions with confidence.
Patient centred approach
Placing the patient at the centre of all decisions concerning confidentiality and data sharing is the key to successfully discharging your responsibilities as a Caldicott Guardian.
As a Caldicott Guardian you act as the ‘conscience’ of your organisation and will need to be in a position to provide expert advice that enables the organisations to make the decisions that are in the patient’s best interests.
Our experience has taught us that the most challenging decisions for Caldicott Guardians are those where there are either grey areas or gaps in the law, and/or a lack of clear guidance to help inform effective decision making.
We will take you through real case studies that will help you to understand better how to make decisions that satisfy the law, whilst adhering to best clinical practice.
