E-learning for healthcare data security awareness
The course detail from the e-learning for healthcare website says:
The data security awareness level 1 session now meets the statutory and mandatory training requirements and learning outcomes for information governance (IG) in the UK core skills training framework (UK CSTF) as updated in May 2018, to include general data protection regulations (GDPR).
This session is also aligned to the new data security standards that came out of the National Data Guardian's 2016 review. It therefore meets the requirement for level 1 staff training in data security.
You’ll need to know your organisation data service (ODS) code to access the training. Find out more about the code on the Digital Social Care website.
